The Suture and Endomechanical Products Settlement, with a fund of $2.4 million, is a putative class action lawsuit alleging that Cardinal Health and Owens & Minor each engaged in certain business practices that illegally excluded competitors from the marketplace through the use of exclusionary bundled contracts, resulting in artificially high prices for the distribution of suture and/or endomechanical products.

You are an eligible Settlement Class Member if you:

  • Are an acute care provider in the United States or its territories;  
  • Purchased sutures and/or endomechanical product distribution services between, 2008 and August 20, 2015; and
  • Those purchases were directly from Cardinal Health and/or Owens & Minor or their parents, divisions, subsidiaries, predecessors, or affiliates.

Eligible purchases include those of sutures and/or endomechanical product distribution services from Cardinal Health 200, LLC and/or Owens & Minor Distribution, Inc., or any of Defendants’ parents, divisions, subsidiaries, predecessors, or affiliates during the period from December 18, 2008 through August 20, 2015.
