DOJ Accepting Comment on 1963 Consent Decree
Sept. 10, 2019—The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) is seeking public comment on potentially ending the 1963 Consent Decree.
The public has a deadline of October 2.
The 1963 Consent Decree forbade three insurance trade associations and their members (more than 250 at the time) from engaging in several practices, including setting prices and steering automotive repair work away from certain auto body facilities.
The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of Illinois (AASPI) is encouraging members to make comment, per a press release, and believes that terminating this Decree would have a devastating effect on both the motoring public and the national collision repair industry.
