When we put up various posts about the collusion settlement between Pixar, Industrial Light and Magic, and the Department of Justice, TAG caught the attention of a legal office up north. We were contacted by bay area law firm Meade & Schrag a few days back, and after some back-and-forth on the telephone, they sent along this e-mail ...
... The DOJ settled the claims against Lucasfilm and Pixar, but left the door open for current and former employees to bring a class action lawsuit to try to recover monetary damages. ... [Our] firm is investigating this issue and looking to file an antitrust class action suit against Lucasfilm and Pixar. If you have any information that might be helpful, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 510-843-3670.

I told lawyers at the firm that TAG didn't have much in the way of contacts with I.L.M. or Pixar, but we would pass the word that they were looking to right some wrongs and reaching out to former employees.
So if anybody reading this fits the category of employee/ex-employee at one of the above-named companies, and thinks they have a case, now you've got a number to call.
