Professor Leslie will be presenting his paper, "Proving Price Fixing".
Executives who engage in price-fixing conspiracies conceal their activities by employing code names, holding meetings in secret, creating fake trade associations, falsifying travel documents and expense reports, and destroying incriminating evidence. Despite the hurdles these concealment devices present to antitrust plaintiffs trying to prove a price-fixing conspiracy, courts have made it unreasonably difficult for these plaintiffs to survive motions to dismiss and motions for summary judgment. This project explores how courts have foolheartedly created a body of antitrust law that essentially rewards the concealment activities of price fixers.
Lunch will be provided.
