FTAIA Update: How Direct is "Direct"?
Unknown, 12 AM CST
On March 27, 2014, the Seventh Circuit issued a major ruling in Motorola Mobility LLC v. AU Optronics that may narrow the reach of U.S. antitrust laws where the alleged anticompetitive conduct occurred overseas. Appeals raising similar arguments under the Foreign Trade Antitrust Improvements Act are pending before the Second and Ninth Circuits. Please join our panel for a discussion of these new developments and their practical implications in civil litigation and criminal investigations.
