Shames v. Cal. Travel & Tourism Commission (State Action Defense)

The American Antitrust Institute filed an amicus brief in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals urging the court to rehear a decision that expands the state action defense to immunize alleged price fixing by car rental companies in California (Shames v. California Travel & Tourism Commission).

The brief was written by AAI Senior Fellow Peter Carstensen and AAI Director of Legal Advocacy Richard Brunell.
