Class Action Alert: All Star Cheerleading Parents and Gym Owners Harmed by Varsity’s Illegal Monopoly

by Labaton Sucharow

July 21, 2020

If you paid for your child to participate on an All Star Cheerleading team, or you are or were the owner of an All Star Cheerleading gym, you may have been harmed by Varsity Brand’s unlawful monopoly over All Star competitions and All Star apparel. Varsity Brands, along with its subsidiaries Varsity Spirit and Varsity Fashion & Supplies, and with U.S. All Star Federation, Inc. (“USASF”), may have violated federal antitrust laws by charging artificially high prices for participation in All Star competitions and for All Star apparel.

If you paid for your child to participate on an All Star Cheerleading team or you owned an All Star Cheerleading gym, and you participated in a Varsity sponsored competition or purchased apparel from Varsity between 2016 and the present, you may have been injured by this unlawful conduct. To date, multiple lawsuits have been filed against the companies listed above, alleging that the defendants engaged in illegal conduct under federal antitrust laws and seeking financial compensation for individuals and companies that were forced to overpay Varsity and the other defendants. For a free consultation to discuss the specifics of your case, please contact the Labaton Sucharow attorneys listed below. We can provide an evaluation of the merits of your case and explain how you can get involved in a class action against these companies.
