Audet & Partners, LLP is investigating potential claims by purchasers of parking heaters that the price of these units in the aftermarket may have been artificially and illegally inflated as the result of anticompetitive behavior by Espar, a prominent parking heater manufacturer.
Espar recently pled guilty to charges brought by the U.S. Department of Justice which alleged price-fixing and antitrust violations under the Sherman Antitrust Act. The charges against Espar and its coconspirators alleged, among other things, a scheme that was allegedly implemented and which affected the market price of parking heaters between October 2007 and December 2012.
If you purchased a parking heater during this period, there is a high degree of likelihood that the price you paid was artificially inflated as a result of this anticompetitive behavior. We urge you to contact us for a free case evaluation as to whether you may potentially be entitled to compensation in a parking heater antitrust lawsuit.
