I am delighted to be a speaker with two very distinguished co-panelists for an ABA Section of Antitrust Law, Joint Conduct and International Committees teleconference: The FTAIA and International Comity — Deference to Foreign Enforcement. The program will be held on Monday March 9, 2015 from 12:00 to 1:30 pm EST.
The panel will consider how, or whether, the FTAIA should be applied to accommodate competition enforcement policies of countries in which cartel members reside. They will compare extraterritorial application of the Sherman Act to extraterritorial application of competition laws by other countries and will weigh foreign interest in restraints on Sherman Act reach, taking into account amicus brief filings by foreign competition agencies in U.S. appellate court.
