Case Description

The Illinois Attorney General filed suit against six auto repair shop owners for price-fixing in violation of the Illinois Antitrust Act, 740 ILCS 10/3. The Attorney General alleged that the owners agreed to raise their service charges for labor and their charges for refinishing-related materials. Five of the six owners signed a written contract to that effect. The Attorney General dismissed the case against one owner in exchange for his cooperation and settleed with three other owners for $12,000. The Attorney General proceeded to trial against one owner, Greg Hensley, who owned Greg’s Auto Body. After trial, the court ruled in the Attorney General’s favor and issued a permanent injunction and assessed a civil penalty of $5,000 against Hensley. Hensley apparently left Illinois, and the judgment against him was unable to be collected.
