Federal Judge Dismisses Claims Against Curtis Client Glencore Ltd.

U.S. District Judge Katherine B. Forrest dismissed complaints in multidistrict litigation against Glencore Ltd., represented by Curtis, as well as Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan. The firms were accused of illegally manipulating aluminum prices. Judge Forrest ruled the rationale set forth in two prior decisions requires dismissal of the claims. The Curtis team representing Glencore was led by partners Eliot Lauer and Jacques Semmelman. Law360 reported on the November 30 decision.
