Rogers v. Keurig/Green Mountain Coffee

Rogers, a family owned coffee company, manufactures the coffee pods used in Keurig brewers.  Rogers filed suit for violations of the antitrust laws by alleging that Keurig engaged in a concerted pattern of behavior including entering into agreements preventing competitors from selling their products in the office and retail space. Keurig also designed a locking mechanism that prevented Rogers coffee pods from working in Keurig brewers. The matter is currently venued in the Southern District of New York, pursuant to an order from the Multi District Panel.  Dan Johnson Law Group successfully opposed Keurig’s motion to dismiss, resulting in all of Rogers’ claims remaining in the case.  The matter is currently in the discovery phase.
