Legal Challenges to State Laws Prohibiting Surcharges on Credit Card Transactions: Implications for the Industry.
12 PM EDT
A number of high profile antitrust cases have addressed the legality under the antitrust laws of credit card network rules that prohibit or limit the ability of merchants to impose surcharges on credit card transactions. What practitioners in the antitrust area may be less aware of are laws that a number of states have enacted that prohibit merchants from surcharging, and the series of constitutional challenges to those laws that have been filed by merchants. This panel of distinguished practitioners will address the importance of these state laws, the issues at stake in the constitutional litigation, and what it all means for how competition is likely to develop in this industry.
