On June 15, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to review a pair of petitions addressing the reach of the Foreign Trade Antitrust Improvements Act (FTAIA). Before the court were Motorola Mobility LLC’s damages case against electronics makers and AU Optronics Corporation’s bid to overturn a $500 million criminal cartel fine. The FTAIA limits the application of U.S. antitrust law to foreign conduct, though it includes exceptions for imports and behavior that affects U.S. commerce. Motorola had asked the court to review the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ ruling that the FTAIA blocked Motorola’s claims relating to allegedly price-fixed liquid crystal display panels that Motorola’s foreign subsidiaries had bought and incorporated into products abroad. AU Optronics had asked the court to reconsider the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ conclusion that the FTAIA did not prevent the DOJ from pursuing its criminal case against the company and inflicting record-breaking antitrust fines. This continues the Supreme Court’s trend of refusing to revisit the FTAIA despite repeated questions regarding interpretation of the legislation.
