Hagens Berman Appointed Lead Counsel In Hotel Price-fixing Case

Stocks in this article: EXPEHOTMARPCLN

The suit claims that as new models emerged in which third-party companies buy up unsold blocks of rooms and resell them to price-cutting online retailers, hotels -- fearing competition -- conspired to crush the practice by creating agreements that mandated minimum hotel room prices for online retailers. The suit also contends that hotels that did not agree to the pricing scheme were frozen out of the online marketplace.

Hagens Berman is continuing to investigate these allegations. Individuals with additional information, or consumers who purchased a hotel room from an online travel company, can contact Hagens Berman by calling (206) 623-7292 or by emailing hotelantitrust@hbsslaw.com.

A complete list of the defendant online retailers and hotels is available at www.hbsslaw.com/HotelAntitrust.
