Carl W. Hittinger and M. Mitchell Oates : The Legal Intelligencer : August 21, 2015
In 1914, Congress passed the FTC Act, creating the Federal Trade Commission. Section 5 of the FTC Act declared "unfair methods of competition in or affecting commerce" to be unlawful and gave the FTC enforcement power over such "unfair methods." Over 100 years later, that key language in Section 5 underlying the agency's competition-related powers had never been the subject of any formal FTC guidance. Clearly, "unfair methods of competition" include Sherman and Clayton Act violations, and some argue that Section 5 reaches beyond those statutes. But exactly what kind of additional conduct falls within the FTC's Section 5 powers has been a long-unsettled question.

Carl W. Hittinger and M. Mitchell Oates : The Legal Intelligencer : August 03, 2015
In a recent opinion, a divided panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled that an economic regulation passed by a state agency solely to protect one group from competition would not violate the constitutional guarantees of due process or equal protection. The court noted that such action might still violate antitrust laws, but went no further since no antitrust claim had been raised in the case. At least in the Second Circuit, this decision raises the stakes in future cases interpreting the scope of state-action immunity under the antitrust laws.
