This podcast discusses the background and potential legal implications, particularly on state licensing boards, of North Carolina Board of Dental Examiners v. Federal Trade Commission, argued before the U.S. Supreme Court last month and previously summarized here. Jay Levine and Darcy Jalandoni, members of Porter Wright’s Antitrust Group, provide an overview of the state action doctrine at issue in the case, analyze possible outcomes, and assess the potential repercussions of the Court’s decision. In particular, Jay and Darcy discuss how the Court’s decision may affect how states will choose to license and oversee professionals (including medical professionals) in the future.
