Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

The Noerr-Pennington Doctrine

Another in the ABA Section of Antitrust Law Monograph series, this book focuses on public policy issues that arise from the antitrust treatment of efforts to petition government or influence government toward anticompetitive action, including petitioning efforts that are themselves collective or anticompetitive. This book expands and updates information that was presented originally in the Section's 1993 monograph on the same subject.

This volume will be a valuable addition to the debate over how the antitrust laws should be applied to collective and unilateral efforts to influence government action for allegedly anticompetitive ends, as well as a valuable resource in applying the Noerr-Pennington doctrine.
