American Alloy, Moore file appeal in MM Steel case

Keywords: Tags  American Alloy Steel, Arthur Moore, Reliance Steel & Aluminum, Chapel Steel, American Alloy, JSW Steel (USA), Nucor, MM Steel antitrust case

CHICAGO — American Alloy Steel Inc. and president Arthur J. Moore have filed an appeal in an antitrust case that saw several steelmakers and service centers hit with $156 million in damages, according to court documents.

The appeal shifts the case to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans, whose jurisdiction includes Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.

The U.S. District Court in Texas in mid-June denied a request for a new trial (, June 13). A jury had previously determined that the companies—including Los Angeles-based service center Reliance Steel & Aluminum Co. and its Chapel Steel Corp. subsidiary; Houston-based American Alloy and Moore; and steelmakers JSW Steel (USA) Inc., Baytown, Texas, and Nucor Corp., Charlotte, N.C.—violated federal and state antitrust laws by conspiring to boycott Houston-based MM Steel LP (, March 26).
