Background Information

Dealership Plaintiffs have alleged that CDK Global, LLC and The Reynolds and Reynolds Company conspired to eliminate competition for auto dealer data integration services and as a result wrongfully seized control over dealer owned data. Specifically, they allege that CDK and Reynolds placed artificial and anticompetitive restrictions on dealer data in order to maintain their dominance over the Dealer Management Systems ("DMS") market, favor their own products and services, unfairly raise prices and obtain profits above levels that would exist in a competitive market and injure competing products and services to the detriment of automobile dealerships and retailers. Plaintiffs are seeking damages against CDK and Reynolds, to enjoin their alleged illegal conduct, and stave off further harm to vendors, dealers, and other participants in the automotive industry.
