New York alleged that the more than 30 named defendants participated in a collusive bid-rigging and market-allocation scheme involving all major concrete construction work worth over $2,000,000 in New York City between 1978 and 1985. Defendants included ready-mix concrete companies, high-rise construction companies, and various individuals who played major roles in the scheme. NY alleged that bids were rigged and work was allocated on major high-rise building projects, both public and private, including the (Javits) New York Convention and Exposition Center. Most defendants settled; one went to trial (see Julius Nasso Construction). Claims by the defendant companies for work done on the Javits Center were dismissed as part of the settlement.
