Spiegel Attorneys File Brief in Supreme Court Antitrust State-Action Immunity Case on Behalf of State and Local Government Associations

January 22, 2018

Today, January 22, Spiegel & McDiarmid LLP filed a Supreme Court amicus brief in Salt River Project Agricultural Improvement & Power District v. SolarCity Corp. on behalf of the National Governors Association, the National Conference of State Legislatures, the Council of State Governments, the National Association of Counties, the National League of Cities, the U.S. Conference of Mayors, the International City/County Management Association, and the International Municipal Lawyers Association.  The amici support the petitioner, Salt River, in arguing that district court denials of state-action immunity to governmental antitrust defendants should be immediately appealable under the Cohen collateral order doctrine.  Tim Lay, Katie Mapes, Jessica Bell, and Amber Martin were on the brief, which can be read at the attachment below.
