Welcome to the Information Website for Simon and Simon, PC et al. v. Align Technology, Inc. Lawsuit.

There is a class action lawsuit entitled Simon and Simon, PC et al. v. Align Technology, Inc., Case No. 3:20-CV-03754-VC, pending in United States District Court for The Northern District of California. The Plaintiffs allege that Align engaged in anticompetitive conduct causing those who purchased Invisalign Aligners directly from Align to pay more than they should have for those Aligners. Align denies the allegations.

The Court has not decided whether Align has done anything wrong. There is no money available now, nor is there any guarantee that there will be. However, your legal rights are affected, and you have a choice to make now.

The Court certified a Class to include “all persons or entities in the United States that purchased Invisalign Aligners directly from Align during the period beginning January 1, 2019, through March 31, 2022”.
