In March 2022, the U.S. DOJ made headlines with the announcement it is considering bringing criminal monopolization cases under Section 2 of the Sherman Act for the first time in nearly fifty years. But is there any precedent that can help us understand what criminal prosecution of monopolization conduct would look like? Tiffany Rider and James Hunsberger of Axinn join John Roberti and Jaclyn Phillips to walk us through the decades-old case law and lay out the challenges DOJ might face trying to bring these cases under the modern antitrust framework. Listen to this episode to learn about whether the past can tell us anything about what DOJ will do in the future.
