Supreme Court Rejects Motorola Mobility Antitrust Case

The Supreme Court declined to review a pair of antitrust cases involving an international price-fixing cartel, despite the urging of some legal experts, economists and the National Association of Manufacturers. In one of the cases, a judge concluded that Motorola Mobility, a corporate victim of a price-fixing scheme, could not sue because America’s antitrust laws did not apply to Motorola’s overseas subsidiaries, even though 42 percent of the phones they assembled were shipped to the United States.
