Going forward, I intend on a realtime basis to try to track Northern District of California competition law decisions, and provide brief and timely updates. If all goes well, I may expand this feature to cover state courts in Northern California as well, and perhaps later on even expand further.
Hopefully, these posts will be a useful resource. The Northern District of California has been an important court for the development of antitrust law, especially in connection with the many high-tech companies and industries found within its jurisdiction. So providing ongoing coverage of its opinions seems worthwhile.
Although some other publications cover antitrust decisions nationwide, I have not yet seen one focused geographically in this manner. Also, I plan on covering decisions relating to antitrust cases that do not raise purely antitrust issues — e.g., personal jurisdiction decisions or evidence decisions. Additionally, I plan to update within a day or two of each decision, which I believe is faster than some other publications’ schedules.
I will omit coverage of cases with which I have some connection.
