United States: Second Circuit Adopts Rule Making It Easier To Find Liability For Foreign Anticompetitive Conduct
July 28, 2014
On June 4, 2014, the Second Circuit issued its decision in Lotes Co., Ltd. v. Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., an important ruling on the reach of the U.S. antitrust laws to foreign conduct. The Foreign Trade Antitrust Improvements Act ("FTAIA") limits the reach of U.S. antitrust liability to foreign conduct that has a "direct, substantial, and reasonably foreseeable effect" on U.S.commerce. In Lotes, the Second Circuit construed this language to require plaintiffs to show only a "reasonably proximate causal nexus" between the conduct and the effect on U.S. domestic commerce or import commerce, a view recently endorsed by the Seventh Circuit in Minn-Chem. This view contrasts with the Ninth Circuit's more stringent standard that the effect on U.S.commerce be an "immediate consequence" of the anticompetitive conduct. This post analyzes the Second Circuit's rationale, discusses its relative lack of guidance, and identifies other pending cases and decisions on the same issue. The Second Circuit's Decision

Agriculture; Farmland will revert to the wild;
July 28, 2014
Dateline: CIRCLEVILLE, Ohio Nestled among acres of rolling Pickaway County farmland, the newly christened Bartley Preserve stands out. The property, formerly owned by the List family, contains slopes and ridges created by glaciers, allowing rare and endangered plants to thrive in seasonal wetlands. It's in the flyway zone of many bird species as they migrate south for winter. And an unexcavated Adena burial mound has been there for thousands of years, quietly reminding those who pass by of the area's varied history. Rows of soybean plants currently cover the soil, but by fall 2015, the Appalachia Ohio Alliance hopes to begin replacing the cash crop with plants that might have been there when the Adena people roamed the plains.
