Western Convenience Stores, Inc. v. Suncor Energy (U.S.A.) Inc.

Western Convenience Stores, which operated a chain of 37 gasoline stations in Colorado, alleged that refiner Suncor had offered favorable pricing to its competitor in retail gasoline sales, Kroger, Inc., in violation of the Robinson-Patman Act (RPA).

Ted Tatos and co-expert Mark Glick of the Univ. of Utah were retained to analyze gasoline pricing, address the Morton Salt presumption of injury under the RPA, and calculate damages. Both submitted two co-authored reports in the matter and gave trial testimony.
