Tuesday, November 14, 2017
12:00 to 1:00 pm

ABA Teleconference

Dr. Chipty will speak on an ABA panel on market definition in Section 2 and Section 7 cases. The panel will discuss whether the same test (e.g., the hypothetical monopolist test) can be used to define markets in monopolization cases and merger cases. The panel will also discuss whether market definition is a question of law or fact, and whether the use of a specific tool to define markets should be subject to review on appeal as a question of law or fact.
