Antitrust Suit Filed Against Amazon and Partner Borders

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on December 12, 2002

A number of news sources just reported on a class action suit filed in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California, on October 29, 2002 by Amazon.com customer Gary Gerlinger. The source of the information apparently originates from a 12/11/2002 Form 10Q filing by Borders Group, Inc. The following statement appears in the filing: “The Complaint alleges that the agreement pursuant to which an affiliate of Amazon operates Borders.com as a co-branded site violates federal anti-trust laws, California statutory law and the common law of unjust enrichment. ”
