EI Chairman Barry C. Harris was the economic expert for Argos USA during a Robinson-Patman litigation in federal court in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands. Plaintiff Spartan Concrete Products alleged that Argos had provided a competitor of Spartan’s an illegal 10% volume discount in its purchase of cement. Spartan was seeking damages of between $6.3 million and $8.8 million. Dr. Harris submitted an expert report that concluded that Spartan had not demonstrated injury to competition and that its damage estimates were flawed and not reliable. Judge Gomez ruled that Spartan had not met the necessary elements of proof and granted Argos’ motion for a directed verdict. Kent Mikkelsen and Lona Fowdur worked with Dr. Harris. Argos was represented by McGuire Woods LLP.
