An appellate panel voted Monday to remand back to a lower court conspiracy to monopolise claims in the Curtin Maritime v Santa Catalina Island Company lawsuit. That part of the decision was unanimous, but the panel divided on Curtin’s Sherman Act section 1 claims, with the majority affirming a California judge’s finding that Curtin did not adequately allege antitrust injury. Also, it has been reported that roughly 40 state attorneys general may be teaming up with the Department of Justice to put a stop to Facebook’s alleged anticompetitive conduct.
