first_imgNortheast Dairy Farmers reached a settlement agreement with Dean Foods Company in their class action antitrust lawsuit against Dean, Dairy Farmers of America (DFA) and Dairy Marketing Services (DMS). The agreement will include $30 million in monetary damages and injunctive relief that calls for Dean to purchase a portion of its raw milk from multiple Northeast sources.”This is a major win for dairy farmers in the Northeast who have been squeezed by monopolization and price-fixing,” said Benjamin Brown, an attorney at Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll, PLLC, which represents the plaintiff dairy farmers. “We are pleased that Dean Foods is working with plaintiffs to put this practice behind them.”The lawsuit — Alice H. Allen, et al. vs. Dairy Farmers of America — is far from resolved, however, added Kit A. Pierson of Cohen Milstein.”The case is continuing against the remaining defendants, Dairy Farmers of America and its marketing affiliate Dairy Marketing Services,” explained Pierson. “Still at issue are charges that the DFA — the nation’s largest cooperative — monopolized a level of distribution of fluid milk in the Northeast and forced dairy farmers to join DFA or its marketing affiliate DMS to survive.”DFA and DMS have been named in the suit for engaging in monopolization, price-fixing, and other anticompetitive conduct.”The fact that Dean has agreed to purchase raw milk from multiple sources is a big step in the right direction,” said Robert Abrams of Howrey, LLP, which also represents the plaintiff dairy farmers. “What dairy farmers want is a choice between different bottlers. They have been living in a world that is monopolized and they pay the prices that are offered to them or they don’t sell milk. What we want is choice and competition.”The next step is for the U.S. District Court for the District of Vermont — where the lawsuit was filed in August 2009 — to grant preliminary approval of the settlement agreement. Notice will then go out to the estimated 5,000 to 10,000 Northeast dairy farmers who could be eligible to file a claim for monetary damages.Abrams added, “We are pleased that a settlement with Dean has been reached and look forward to a timely court approval.”For more information, visit www.cohenmilstein.com(link is external).SOURCE Northeast Dairy Farmers WASHINGTON, Dec. 24, 2010 /PRNewswire/last_img read more

first_img“Jack will leave, that’s for certain. We do not want to come in the way of a player who wants to progress. We are in negotiations with Petro and we should be coming to an agreement soon. They have already tabled their offer so it is just a matter of agreeing,” Rachier told Capital Sport.Tuyisenge joined Gor Mahia at the start of the 2016 season from Rwandese side Police FC for a reported fee of Sh4mn and according to reports, the club might make up to 11m in profit in the transfer with Petro willing to part with close to Sh15mn for the striker’s services.“He has been a good player and a good servant to the club. He loves the team and has worked hard every day. I think we cannot block him from leaving because the club also need money. We have spent so much in the Continental games and it is only logical that of a good offer comes from a player they look to make the most out of it,” head coach Hassan Oktay noted.Gor Mahia forward Jacques Tuyisenge admires his medal before lining up to lift the club’s 17th Kenyan Premier League title at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu on September 30, 2018.

Algeria’s CS Constantine and USM Alger were also interested in his services at the beginning of the year.“At this moment, the only person who has come to us and told us they want to leave is Jack. No one else has officially made it known to us. Kahata has a contract till the end of June and we will offer him a new contract. But, it will be his prerogative to know whether he stays or leaves,” stated Rachier.Head coach Oktay is already scratching his head with his top players said to be leaving but he says he has already given his wish-list to the club’s leadership.“Of course I am worried if most of my players are leaving but we cannot do much about it. I have several local based players who I want to get and we will try to get them,” stated Oktay.Among the players who are said to be in Gor’s radar include the Sofapaka duo of striker John Avire and midfielder Dennis Odhiambo.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gor Mahia striker Jacques Tuyisenge kneels down to celebrate after converting a penalty during a past Kenyan Premier League match.
