Between February and March last year, three class action lawsuits were filed against Coca-Cola Enterprises

Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) has announced a planned settlement hearing for a series of class action lawsuits related to the sale of its North American bottling operations to The Coca-Cola Co in February.

Coca-Cola completed the deal in October last year. However, between February and March last year, three class action lawsuits were filed alleging that CCE and its board of directors had breached their fuduciary duties in connection with their consideration and approval of the transaction.

CCE said this week that the Superior Court of Fulton County has scheduled a settlement hearing for all actions for 8 June.
