Bearings – Sotos Class Actions
Auto Parts Class Action


This class action alleges that the defendants unlawfully conspired to rig bids for and artificially inflate the prices of bearings incorporated into new vehicles and sold to dealers and consumers across Canada from April 20, 1998 to March 31, 2012.

Bearings are friction-reducing devices that allow one moving part to glide past another moving part. Bearings (including automotive wheel hub unit bearings) are used in automotive vehicles, light, medium and heavy duty vehicles, buses, commercial vehicles, industrial machinery, construction equipment, mining equipment and/or railway vehicles (collectively, “Products containing bearings”).
