Tyler Nance, on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. 1-800 Contacts, Inc., Defendant, Case No. 4:17-cv-00178, (E.D. Ark., March 22, 2017), seeks to recover damages, including treble damages, costs of suit, and reasonable attorneys’ fees and injunctive relief resulting from restraint of trade in violation of the Sherman Act and the Arkansas Deceptive Trade Practices Act.

Defendant 1-800 Contacts is a corporation organized under the laws of Delaware, with a principal place of business at 66 East Wadsworth Park Drive, Draper, Utah 84020. It sells contact lenses and related products over the internet and by telephone throughout the United States, including the State of Arkansas.

1-800 Contacts allegedly entered into bidding agreements with search engine companies that did not display the prices, products and services offered by its competitors in the market for online sales of contact lenses, thus limiting price and competition. [BN]
