Automotive Recyclers Association Applauds
Ruling In California Anti-Trust and Unfair Competition Case

Manassas, VA - Last week a California federal court dismissed the Perez et al v. State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company et al case in which plaintiffs claimed that insurance companies had violated California’s antitrust statute and unfair competition. Of particular concern in the case, the plaintiffs' expert witness stated in submitted documents that with regards to six categories of aftermarket parts and four categories of salvage [recycled] parts there is at least a 25% probability that the use of these parts 'will lessen the quality of the automobile's repair as to safety, fit, structural integrity or mechanical functioning than [sic] would be experienced over the life of a high-quality OEM repair part".
