WHAT’S THE ISSUE?

Hagens Berman has filed a lawsuit defending the rights of Las Vegas consumers harmed by an alleged scheme perpetrated by some of the largest gaming and hospitality companies, including Wynn and MGM Hotels. We believe these casinos colluded to artificially increase the price of Las Vegas hotel rooms, putting rates above competitive levels. In this alleged scheme, consumers lose, and rates are adjusted beyond what a free market would bear. We believe in upholding consumers’ rights.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I’M AFFECTED?

YOUR CONSUMER RIGHTS

Your rights as a consumer include a fair price for your accommodations, and we believe these companies have violated federal laws in artificially raising the price of hotel rooms in Las Vegas. You may have rights under antitrust laws to compensation for your losses due to this scheme.

PRICE SCHEME EXPLAINED

Our legal team believes that beginning in 2019, these hospitality giants began to work together to increase hotel room prices for Las Vegas consumers. According to the complaint, instead of using an independent pricing metric and supply decisions, they agreed to use a third-party pricing and data collection service, Rainmaker, to make unit-specific price adjustments. Rainmaker also allegedly allows participating hotel companies to coordinate supply levels to avoid price competition. They allegedly made these changes in lockstep, forcing hotel room prices higher.

HOW CAN A CLASS ACTION HELP?

Through a class-action lawsuit, individual consumers can collectively bring claims against large corporations that would otherwise have the upper hand. A class-action lawsuit seeks to level the playing field, bringing strength to collective action to change corrupt practices. Though these measures do not bring immediate relief, they are a time-tested method of holding companies accountable for wrongdoing.
