The petition of the day is:
Disclosure: Goldstein & Russell, P.C., whose attorneys contribute to this blog in various capacities, is among the counsel to the petitioner in this case. The case is posted without consideration of whether it presents an appropriate vehicle in which to decide the issues.
Issue: (1) Whether a cartel’s delivery of price-fixed goods overseas for incorporation into finished products imported directly to the United States is immune from private suit under U.S. antitrust law; and (2) whether, absent special circumstances, a motions panel may assign itself to decide the merits of a case.
