Jackson Furniture joins foam price fixing lawsuit

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. - Upholstery maker Jackson Furniture has joined 90 companies that are suing 16 manufacturers of polyurethane foam makers for alleged price fixing, a story in the Chattanooga Times Free Press reports.

The lawsuit accuses the defendants of fixing prices for flexible polyurethane foam for more than 10 years. The story reported that Cleveland, Tenn.-based Jackson is among 90 companies that have sued foam makers following a federal investigation into the allegations in 2010.

Jackson filed the suit in June. It alleges that foam manufacturers inflated prices by about 15.2%.
