Insulation Contractor Executive Pleads Guilty To Antitrust and Fraud Charges

04/30/2019: Department of Justice Antitrust

“Today’s guilty plea is the second relating to a $45 million scheme to cheat New England schools, hospitals, and other businesses by agreeing to fix prices on insulation contracts in violation of the antitrust laws,” said Assistant Attorney General Makan Delrahim of the Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division. “As this prosecution shows, the Justice Department and our law enforcement partners, including the FBI and DCIS, will use every available resource to detect and bring to justice individuals who attempt to hide their criminal conduct by using high-tech encryption apps, burner phones, or any other means.”
