The Potential FTC Impact of Post-Axon Process Changes

John T Delacourt, Alden F Abbott, Asheesh K Agarwal, and Kathleen W Bradish

The narrow issue presented in Axon v. FTC – the forum for a constitutional challenge to the FTC’s structure – could potentially have much broader impact. This program will consider whether the Supreme Court’s Axon-related scrutiny of the FTC’s statutory mandate will bolster the ambitious approaches of current Commission leadership or present obstacles to such initiatives as antitrust rulemaking.
