Comcast Corp. v. Viamedia

U.S. Supreme Court

Question(s) Presented

(1) whether the Seventh Circuit erred in holding that a refusal-to-deal claim under § 2 of the Sherman Act may proceed despite the presence of valid business justifications for the refusal, in direct conflict with Trinko and decisions of the Second, Ninth, Tenth, and Eleventh Circuits; and

(2) whether the Seventh Circuit erred in allowing a plaintiff to avoid the limitations on a § 2 refusal-todeal claim by reframing it as some other form of anticompetitive conduct, such as tying, in direct conflict with Linkline and decisions of the Fourth, Ninth, and Tenth Circuits.
