In a closely watched case that has been pending in the federal courts for over a decade—a series of private lawsuits alleging that Chinese manufacturers had colluded to fix prices of vitamin C imported into the U.S.—the Second Circuit on Tuesday vacated a $147 million judgment for the plaintiffs and remanded with instructions to dismiss the complaint with prejudice.  Defendants had claimed that they had fixed prices at the direction of the Chinese government.
