Richard A. Blake, Jr. was charged with engaging in a conspiracy to allocate customers of heir location services sold in the United States from approximately 1999 until January 29, 2014, which resulted in sales of heir location services at collusive and noncompetitive contingency fee rates. As part of the proposed plea agreement between the Antitrust Division and Mr. Blake, the heir location services company owned by Mr. Blake was not charged with the offense.
Related charges have been filed in the District of Utah against Kemp & Associates and Daniel J. Mannix.
