Remembering Justice John Paul Stevens: The Tipline for 17 July 2019
Retired Supreme Court justice John Paul Stevens died yesterday at the age of 99. Stevens was a founding member of the Chicago law firm Rothschild Stevens Barry & Myers, where he focused on antitrust law. He also taught antitrust at the University of Chicago Law School, was a member of the Attorney General’s National Committee to Study Antitrust Law and served on the House of Representatives antitrust subcommittee as it investigated industries such as professional baseball. As a justice, Stevens’ most significant antitrust majority opinions likely came in sports-related cases: American Needle v National Football League and National Collegiate Athletic Association v Board of Regents. Both rulings held that the sports organisations fell under the jurisdiction of the Sherman Act.
