Third Circuit Appeals Court Upholds Prior Decision on Processed Egg Products Antitrust Litigation


In an opinion filed March 15th 2021, the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit upheld the decision of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania denying an appeal by a group of supermarkets against Rose Acre Farms, United Egg Producers Inc. and United States Egg Marketers Inc. 


Effectively the three-judge panel rejected the appellants contention that jury instructions were incorrect and ruled that the jury verdict was valid. Also on the basis of precedent, the UEP Certified Program was not “manifestly anticompetitive” and the previous judgement was affirmed to the benefit of Rose Acre Farms and the UEP.
