  • The U.S. Supreme Court released its American Needle decision yesterday. The case, which concerns the analysis of joint ventures under Section 1 of the Sherman Act, is the first Supreme Court antitrust decision in more than five years to go in favor of the plaintiff. Antitrust defendants had won ten straight High Court decisions since 2004.
