Issue: Whether the filed-rate doctrine exempts a cartel from from federal antitrust damages liability for price-fixed rates filed with a state agency, given (a) there is no meaningful review of the filed rates by the agency, (b) the agency is unable to award retrospective compensatory relief for the unlawful conduct, and (c) the private cartel price-fixing would not be exempt under the state action doctrine due to lack of “active supervision” by the agency.
