INTRODUCING....SECTION 13 (B)LOG
Providing Updates and Breakdowns on all Section 13(b) News
The reach of Section 13(b) of the FTC Act – and the extent of the FTC’s enforcement authority — has been a hotly-debated topic following the Third Circuit’s decision in Shire ViroPharma and the Seventh Circuit’s decision in Credit Bureau Center.
In this first installment of what we are calling the “Section 13 (b)log,” we summarize a recent discussion between Bikram Bandy (FTC Chief Litigation Counsel), John Villafranco (Kelley Drye), Berin Szoka (Tech Freedom), and Noah Kaufman (Morgan Lewis) on this issue during an ABA Antitrust Law Section panel, revisit the Shire and Credit Bureau Center cases, and opine as to the next steps that the Supreme Court may take when it weighs in on Section 13(b).
