Walid Chaiehloudj USA: The U.S. Department of Justice reviews a white paper submitted by a professional organization representing newspaper publishers in which it accuses a search engine of abusing its dominant position in the online search market

122

David va-t-il renverser Goliath ? Un tel exploit, certes rare à l’échelle de l’histoire, n’est pas tout à fait inédit. La prouesse de David, enfermée dans le saint livre qu’est la Bible hébraïque, n’a d’ailleurs pas échappé aux éditeurs de presse américains. Ces derniers, semblant se souvenir de l’exploit du (...)

Walid Chaiehloudj USA: The Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit applies the Noerr-Pennington doctrine in an antitrust case on the futures market (U.S. Futures exchange / Board of Trade of the City of Chicago)

145

Anti-trust law, whose provisions are of public order, belongs to a matter imbued with imperative nature. It is therefore very difficult for companies to escape its grasp when the loops of Section 1 or Section 2 of the Sherman Act close around them. At most, they can try to use the residency (...)

Walid Chaiehloudj USA: Eighty-two academics file an amicus brief with the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in support of the Federal Trade Commission’s position in a pay-for-delay case (Impax Laboratories)

87

The Impax case that we have recently discussed in these columns has bounced back in the courts (Concurrences No. 2-2019, Art. No. 90540, p. 208). The pharmaceutical company seeks to challenge the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) assessment that the agreements entered into by the company were (...)

Walid Chaiehloudj USA: The Northern District Court of Georgia receives a complaint filed by an online advertising company accusing a well-known search engine company of monopolizing the market (Inform / Google, Alphabet, Youtube)

242

Is the antitrust vise around Google tightening in the United States? A previous chronicle might have raised doubts about this (Concurrences No. 3-2019, art. No. 91291, p. 211). We remember that in Google vs Marshall’s Locksmith Service, the search engine had finally managed to escape antitrust (...)

Walid Chaiehloudj United States: The Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice for the first time in its history uses arbitration to challenge merger between two suppliers of aluminium car body manufacturer under the Administrative Dispute Resolution Act of 1996 (Novelis / Aleris)

470

Since the Supreme Court’s 1985 decision in Mitsubishi Motors Corp. v. Soler Chrysler-Plymouth, 473 U.S. 614 (1985), the question of whether antitrust law and arbitration form an impossible couple no longer arises. The decision had clearly answered this question by stating, inter alia, that "once (...)

Walid Chaiehloudj US: The Court of Appeal for the District of Columbia Circuit confirms that search engines, leaders in the online search market, benefit from an antitrust immunity (Google / Marshall’s Locksmith Service)

175

Can a search engine escape antitrust prosecution when it acts as an intermediary on the Internet by providing false information on the location of companies? In other words, can the Sherman Act be overridden when a search engine merely takes over location information provided by third party (...)

Walid Chaiehloudj United States: The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit denies a challenge to the use of the per se rule in a criminal antitrust case (USA / Javier Sanchez)

253

Inexistent at the level of the European Union and very little used in France, criminal antitrust law seems to be ignored on the old continent. This is not the case in the United States. On the contrary, it enjoys a remarkable influence on the other side of the Atlantic. For several decades now, (...)

Walid Chaiehloudj The U.S.: The Eastern District Court of Virginia orders a company resulting from a recent merger to divest a door manufacturing plant in order to restore competition in the interior door market (Steves and Sons / Jeld-Wen)

149

The case recently decided by the court of the Eastern District of Virginia is interesting for several reasons. In particular, it reveals the very high antitrust risks that certain companies that result from a merger approved by the Department of Justice may face. In this case, after the U.S. (...)

Walid Chaiehloudj United States: The US Supreme Court rules that the credit card market is a multisided market and that anti-steering clauses do not have anticompetitive effects on this market (Ohio / American Express)

314

The Amex case is certainly one of the most emblematic cases of 2018 in the United States. It took root in the fall of 2010 following a complaint filed jointly by the Department of Justice and seventeen states against three bank card companies (EECB): Visa, MasterCard and American Express (...)

Walid Chaiehloudj United States: The US District Court for the Northern District of California receives a lawsuit seeking class action status against three main manufacturers active in the memory chip market for having concluded anticompetitive agreements (Michele Jones and alii / Micron Technology, Micron Semiconductor Products, Samsung Electronics, Samsung Semiconductor, Hynix, Hynix America)

225

On April 19, a class action was filed in the Northern District Court of California accusing Samsung, Hynix and Micron of having entered into anti-competitive agreements in the market for memory chips, which specialists refer to as dynamic RAM memories. In the United States, these memory chips (...)

Walid Chaiehloudj United States: The United States Court of Appeals of the Third Circuit adopts a restrictive analysis of antitrust interest in bringing proceedings (Wellbutrin XL Antitrust Litigation Indirect Purchaser Class)

137

By imposing the rule of reason on lower courts to review entry deferral agreements, the Actavis judgment did not resolve all the difficulties posed by pay-for-delay ( Federal Trade Commission v. Actavis, 133 S. Ct 2223, 2013, obs. J.-C. Roda). Indeed, the choice of the rule of reason has not (...)
