Another in the ABA Section of Antitrust Law Monograph series, this book focuses on public policy issues that arise from the antitrust treatment of efforts to petition government or influence government toward anticompetitive action, including petitioning efforts that are themselves collective or anticompetitive. This book expands and updates information that was presented originally in the Section’s 1993 monograph on the same subject. As the 1993 monograph was going to press, the Supreme Court decided Professional Real Estate Investors v. Columbia Pictures Industries, 508 U.S. 49 (1993), causing the authors of that edition to include an addendum about that case, this book covers this material.This monograph considers the law and policy issues surrounding petitioning immunity, commonly referred to as the Noerr-Pennington doctrine, which exempts from antitrust liability genuine efforts by private parties to influence government action. The Supreme Court has been silent on the Noerr-Pennington doctrine since the early 90’s, but the law has continued to develop, new issues have come to the forefront, and this monograph will contribute to your understanding of this fascinating and challenging area of antitrust law.This volume will be a valuable addition to the debate over how the antitrust laws should be applied to collective and unilateral efforts to influence government action for allegedly anticompetitive ends, as well as a valuable resource in applying the Noerr-Pennington doctrine.
