The 28th Golden State Institute Edition
For the 28th year in a row, the Antitrust, UCL and Privacy Section held its Golden State Institute. As in the past, leading jurists, enforcers and practitioners gathered to discuss cutting-edge issues touching on these topicsâensuring GSI’s place as the preeminent competition law conference in the Western United States. This edition of Competition reproduces many of the superb presentations featured at the 28th Annual GSI.
The day began with a survey of recent developments in California antitrust, unfair competition, and privacy law by "the three Toms": Tom Papageorge, head of the Consumer Protection Unit of the San Diego District Attorney’s Office; Tom Greene, a trial attorney for the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice; and Tom Dahdouh, Regional Director of the Federal Trade Commission’s Western Region. The exhaustive review of substantive developments in California and federal antitrust and privacy law, presented by Tom Papageorge, is reprised here. Tom Greene provided a survey of recent California procedural developments; that, too, is reprinted here.
