ABA call-in tomorrow: Lanham Act developments for antitrust lawyers

Antitrust, Unfair Competition, & the Lanham Act: Recent Intersections in Litigation

March 6, 2014—1:30 pm to 2:30 pm Eastern
With the U.S. Supreme Court poised to decide whether antitrust standing should apply to
Lanham Act claims in the Static Control litigation, as well as the scope of FDCA
preemption of Lanham Act and state consumer protection claims in Pom Wonderful,
there is plenty for consumer protection and competition litigators to watch at the high
court this Term. This program will provide an overview of those cases, as well as other
notable matters in which antitrust and consumer protection laws such as the Lanham Act
have intersected, including the recent $113 million jury verdict in the Retractable
Syringes case currently on appeal to the Fifth Circuit.

This is a dial-in program; register using the link above.  Free for Antitrust section members; $25 otherwise.
