Heary Brothers Lightning Protection Co., Inc., et al. v. National Fire Protection Association, Inc., et al.
Posted September 22, 2017
Constantine Cannon defended the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), a standard-setting association, in a suit alleging that NFPA conspired with plaintiffs’ competitors through its standard setting process to exclude plaintiffs’ allegedly innovative technology in the lightning protection industry. The NFPA, alone among the defendants, was able to settle this case on very favorable terms prior to any significant discovery in the case.
