Haggen sues Albertsons for $1billion

Bellingham-based Haggen has filed a lawsuit against Albertsons seeking more than $1 billion in damages over a deal that has become acrimonious.

The complaint alleges that Albertsons engaged in “coordinated and systematic efforts to eliminate competition and Haggen as a viable competitor in over 130 local grocery markets in five states.” It was filed on Tuesday, Sept. 1 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware. Haggen estimates the damages would exceed $1 billion, with the actual amount to be determined at trial.
