New York v. Facsimile Communications Industry, Inc. d/b/a/ Atlantic Business Products, Inc., No. 402299/03 (Sup. Ct. N.Y. County)
Atlantic Business Products and Candle Business Systems entered into a customer allocation agreement that had a negative effect on the retail copier market. Candle plead to the criminal charges and entered into a settlement resolving the civil action.
Plaintiff state alleged a decade-long conspiracy between two of the New York metropolitan area’s largest copier and duplicator retailers to supply customers in violation of the Donnelly Act, New York’s antitrust law. The investigation also led to the indictment of a salesperson for bribery and bid-rigging in connection with the sale of copiers and duplicators to New York City schools.
