ANTITRUST CLASS ACTIONS
Class actions for consumers and retailers challenging prohibited agreements or practices that restrict free trading and competition between business entities. The antitrust laws, both State and Federal, ban abusive behavior by a firm dominating a market, or anti-competitive practices that tend to lead to such a dominant position. Practices controlled in this way may include predatory pricing, tying, price gouging, refusal to deal and many others. In addition, merger transactions that are considered to threaten the competitive process can be prohibited altogether, or approved subject to "remedies" such as an obligation to divest part of the merged business or to offer licenses that enable other businesses to continue competing.
