By Thomas A. Papageorge and Thomas Greene*
Editor’s Note: Every year, at the October Golden State Institute, Tom Papageorge and Tom Greene provide an extensive overview of recent developments in, respectively, state antitrust substantive law and relevant federal procedural law. Their outlines are thorough and well-done. The Committee receives numerous requests for copies of their fine work. In order to provide their outlines to as many of our members are possible, The Editors of Competition have decided to publish their work herein. Please note that, while the authors have done their best to annotate this outline, this Update reflects new cases and developments as of October 2013. Furthermore, these are a selection of developments that may be particular important to members of the Section. Please consult other references for all of the developments that may be important to your practice.
