Spring Training: New Developments Concerning the Business of Baseball Exemptions
3 PM EDT
Since 1922, the U.S. Supreme Court has recognized that the business of baseball does not constitute interstate commerce and is, therefore, exempt from federal antitrust scrutiny. While the Supreme Court has refused to extend the business of baseball exemption to other professional sports, the Court has continued to uphold the business of baseball exemption on stare decisis grounds. This panel will discuss new litigation challenging the business of baseball exemption and analyze the continued vitality of the exemption.
