Cemex Obtains Denial of Class Certification

Skadden secured a major victory for Cemex, Inc. in connection with antitrust class actions brought by direct and indirect concrete purchasers in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida. On January 3, Judge Cecilia Altonaga denied the plaintiffs' motion for class certification in the price-fixing suit, ruling they failed to demonstrate that common issues in the suit would predominate over individual questions.
