The representative plaintiffs in the proposed wire harness price fixing class action have launched two similar lawsuits for other automobile parts, namely fuel senders, instrument panel clusters, electronic control units and heater control panels. The plaintiffs allege that the prices of these auto parts were artificially inflated throughout the 00’s, resulting in higher overall prices for automobiles.
Two separate class action lawsuits were commenced in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. The statement of claim for the fuel sender and instrument panel cluster claim can be viewed here, and the statement of claim for the electronic control unit and heater control panel claim can be viewed here.
