ANTITRUST a wood products giant was hit with a $26 million verdict, automatically trebled under the Sherman Antitrust Act, for manipulating the alder log market to force rivals to close their mills. Weyerhaeuser Co. of Federal Way, Ore., was initially sued by three defendants-Ross-Simmons Hardwood Lumber of Longview, Ore.; Stedco, a joint venture owned by Ross-Simmons and the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz; and Smokey Point Hardwoods Inc. of Arlington, Wash. They contended that Weyerhaeuser’s expansion into the alder log market was achieved by selling alder logs from its tree farms at below-market prices. Weyerhaeuser denied any wrongdoing. Smokey Point Hardwoods was dropped from the suit and the joint venture was awarded nothing under the April 19 jury verdict. The entire award went to Ross-Simmons Hardwood Lumber. Confederated Tribes of Siletz v. Weyerhaeuser Co., No. 00-CV-1693-PA (D. Ore.). PLAINTIFFS’ ATTORNEYS: Michael Haglund and Mike Kelley, Haglund, Kirtley, Kelley, Horngren & Jones, Portland, Ore. DEFENSE ATTORNEY: Michael Simon, Perkins Coie, Seattle
