Apples & Economics: Is Illinois Brick Obsolete? | ABA Antitrust Law Spring Meeting 2020

Marriott Marquis Washington, DC
04.23.2020
Event Sponsor: ABA Antitrust Law Section

Edgeworth Economics CEO Dr. John H. Johnson will speak at the 68th Annual ABA Antitrust Law Spring Meeting. The three-day conference is widely considered the premier event of the year for competition and consumer protection professionals worldwide.

Dr. Johnson will speak on the panel, “Apples & Economics: Is Illinois Brick Obsolete?,” presented by the Civil Practice & Procedure and Economics Committees. In Apple v. Pepper, the DOJ argued price setting, not privity, identifies the direct seller. The Supreme Court disagreed, and two justices mused whether it is time to overturn Illinois Brick. In a post-Class Action Fairness Act world where federal courts routinely grapple with indirect purchaser claims despite Illinois Brick, the panel will discuss whether it is time to think differently about indirect purchasers.
