Supreme Court Delivers another Blow to State Action Antitrust Immunity [Antitrust & Regulatory Alert]

February 25, 2015

Today, in North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners v. Federal Trade Commission, the Supreme Court held that a state dental board, created by the legislature, but comprised primarily of dentists elected by other dentists, did not qualify for immunity under the antitrust laws. This is the second time in two years that the Court has significantly limited the applicability of the state action exemption, under which states themselves are immune from the federal antitrust laws. Actions by private parties, including quasi-governmental entities, pursuant to a state regulatory regime may also be immune, but only under certain circumstances. Given the prevalence of state quasi-governmental bodies in regulating a broad range of industries such as energy, professional services, health care and transportation, these decisions will likely force states, and regulated industries, to reconsider their policy and legal strategies.
