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.
