Hexcel Corp. v. Ineos Polymers, Inc.

Hexcel sued BP Amoco on November 26, 2008 for antitrust injuries it allegedly suffered as a result of a carbon fiber price-fixing scheme, beginning in 1992. To avoid the effect of the applicable four-year statute of limitations, 15 U.S.C. 15b, Hexcel contended that the statute of limitations was tolled due to fraudulent concealment by BP Amoco. The court held, however, that based upon the overwhelming evidence of Hexcel's knowledge in the record, the court held that Hexcel's claims were time-barred and affirmed the judgment.
