PITTSBURGH A recycling
company that filed an antitrust lawsuit alleging a competitor
was trying to drive it out of business has withdrawn its
Iron Mountain Recycling LLC of
Gatesville, Texas, had accused Warrington, England-based
European Metal Recycling LLC and its wholly owned New
Orleans-based subsidiary, Southern Recycling LLC, of boycotting
its scrap metal in an effort to destroy the company
(AMM, April 26).
The Gatesville recycler filed for a motion to dismiss,
according to a document filed in U.S. District Court in
Louisiana. It is unclear why the litigation was dropped, and
neither party responded to a request for comment.
