NC Dental Amici: The Scope of the State Action Doctrine
2:30 PM EDT
On February 25 the Supreme Court issued its decision in the NC Dental state action doctrine case, upholding the FTC’s challenge to the activities of the North Carolina Board of Dental Examiners. Focusing on the Board membership’s participation in the market and the lack of state supervision over the Board’s activities, the Court held that Parker did not shield the Board from antitrust scrutiny. This panel will assess the legal and practical impacts of the Court’s decision. How will states move to immunize similar professional regulatory bodies? What constitutes “active supervision”? How will courts apply the rule of reason to suits involving regulatory board conduct? A distinguished set of amici, representing a wide range of interests on both sides of this important case, will discuss these issues and more.
