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.

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