    Sports League Claims 5 Years After American Needle

    3 PM EDT

    Five years after the Supreme Court’s seminal decision in American Needle, some of the thorniest issues in sports antitrust cases have yet to be resolved. The lawyers and economists on this panel have helped shape the current landscape and will address and debate the issues.

    The panelists will address how to prove antitrust harm, including how to define the proper antitrust market. They will also navigate the Rule of Reason, including the tricky problem of balancing a restraint's potential benefits to the sports product (e.g., “competitive balance”) with harm in a downstream market. The panel will also address the role of the ancillary restrains doctrine and least restrictive alternative test.

    Whether involved in sports antitrust litigation, advising sports clients, or simply applying this analysis in other contexts, you will want to attend this panel!
