State and federal investigation into bid-rigging on school milk contracts. Guida-Seibert and other dairies engaged in a conspiracy over a period of years in which the companies decided which company would be the low bidder on each contract. The other companies typically entered higher bids or no bids. Nineteen Connecticut school districts received restitution from the settlement. The Connecticut Attorney General’s office also provided information to the Department of Justice in connection with a criminal antitrust investigation. Guida-
Seibert also pleaded guilty to criminal charges and agreed to pay $850,000 in fines to the federal government.
