Articles

Making sense of U.S. antitrust law is a nearly impossible feat. If you have ever attempted it, you likely found yourself entangled in a labyrinth of intricate rules, followed by an even larger web of obscure exceptions to those rules. The murky nature of antitrust law is further exacerbated when foreign corporations, or foreign affiliates of U.S. corporations, find themselves in a U.S. court defending against allegations of anticompetitive conduct.


While this may be of little consolation to foreign entities, the reality is that the existing case law is inconsistent. Nonetheless, the livelihood of a foreign entity may hinge on knowing how to defend against an antitrust lawsuit. To make matters worse, in the most recent antitrust case involving foreign companies, Animal Science Products, Inc. v. China Minmetals Corporation,1 the Third Circuit made it more complicated for foreign defendants to get out from under complex and expensive litigation. In that case, the court significantly tipped the scales against foreign entities defending against violations of antitrust law, particularly with respect to litigation exposure and costs. If this decision is any indication of the future for antitrust litigation, foreign defendants undoubtedly will face an increasingly uphill battle. Ironically, as the litigation stakes become higher, the law seems to become muddier.

The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) instilled new urgency in the quest to improve America’s public schools.1 NCLB requires schools to meet state-defined performance benchmarks, and schools that fail to do so are deemed as in need of “school improvement,” “corrective action,” or “restructuring” and are subject to escalating penalties.2 The most severe sanction occurs after a school fails to meet a state’s benchmarks for six consecutive years and, therefore, must fundamentally reform its governance operations through the process of restructuring.3 NCLB delineates five ways in which a school may restructure, one of which is the charter conversion option, whereby a school reopens as an independent entity but still operates within the public school system.4 Charter schools provide autonomous and alternative education models. Since these schools are governed according to state law, however, many states micromanage charter schools to the point that they are virtually indistinguishable from traditional public schools.5 A tension arises between NCLB’s focus on fundamental restructuring and charter school statutes that do not allow for a complete overhaul of a school’s governance structure.
