Connecticut Fine Wine and Spirits, LLC v. Seagull

Petition for certiorari denied on April 6, 2020
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
19-710 2nd Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2019

Issue: Whether Section 1 of the Sherman Act preempts state laws facilitating unsupervised private price-fixing, such as Connecticut's—which requires private beer, wine and liquor wholesalers to “post” their prices in advance so that all competing wholesalers can match them, to “hold” those prices for a month and to refrain from offering quantity discounts to retailers; the wholesalers in this scheme determine not only the case prices paid by retailers, but also the minimum bottle prices paid by consumers.
