Federal appeals court backs Toledo truck firm

PHILADELPHIA The owner of Toledo Mack Sales & Service, which sued Mack Trucks Inc. for trying to unfairly take over its business, will get its chance to argue its anti-trust claim in U.S. District Court in Toledo.

A federal court of appeals ruled in favor of the Toledo firm yesterday, saying the firm had sufficient evidence for a jury to find that Mack dealers may have entered into an unlawful conspiracy to fix prices that hurt Toledo Mack, a franchisee.

A federal district court had ruled against the local firm.

Toledo Mack sued in 2002, accusing Mack Trucks, of Allentown, Pa., of costing it more than $1 million by selling to potential customers and competitors for less and on better terms.
