The Second Circuit Amex Decision and Its Relationship to the DOJ'S Suit Against Carolinas Health Care System
12 PM EST
The U.S. Department of Justice (“DOJ”) filed a lawsuit on June 9, 2016 alleging that North Carolina’s largest health system (Carolinas Healthcare System) quashed competition by demanding that insurers not steer consumers to competitors. On September 26, 2016, the Second Circuit reversed a win by the DOJ in a suit alleging that American Express violated antitrust laws by imposing rules barring merchants from steering consumers to other credit card brands. This panel will discuss the potential relationship between the two cases.
