Monopoly Alleged In Crane Certification

     OAKLAND, CALIF. (CN) – In an antitrust lawsuit, a man who was denied accreditation as a crane operator claims the National Commission for Certification of Crane Operators and the International Assessment Institute conspire to monopolize training schools in California, and that the Institute pays kickbacks to Commission for the tests it administers.




     Plaintiff Timothy Maxwell claims he passed all the required courses and tests but the defendants denied him certification anyway, costing him a job.
     He demands punitive damages for antitrust violations, breach of contract, unfair competition, false advertising and interference with prospective business.
     He is represented in Alameda County Court by James Dombroski of Petaluma.
