Girard Sharp has been appointed to serve as co-lead counsel, along with Hausfeld LLP, in an antitrust class action against energy companies Vitol and SK Energy. The firm represents California gasoline purchasers who allege these defendants conspired to fix and stabilize gasoline prices at artificially high levels after a February 2015 explosion at a refinery supplying a significant portion of the state’s gas.
The order was entered on August 7, 2020, by Magistrate Judge Jacqueline Scott Corley, who is presiding in the case.
