The U.S. Sentencing Commission is currently seeking public comments on sentencing for price fixing, bid rigging and market allocation agreements among competitors to determine whether the antitrust sentencing guidelines should be revised. The Sentencing Commission has received a host of comments thus far, including a request from the American Antitrust Institute to double the fines on companies that are found guilty of per se violations of the Sherman Act. FTC Commissioner Joshua Wright and D.C. Circuit Judge Douglas H. Ginsburg commented via a joint letter, requesting the Sentencing Commission to boost penalties on individuals in order to improve antitrust deterrence. Commissioner Wright and Judge Ginsburg urge “the Commission to consider increasing the prescribed range of jail sentences and to consider as well other individual sanctions, including enhanced individual fines and, insofar as the law allows, disqualification from holding fiduciary positions for a period of years.” The comments pertain to the Sentencing Commission’s current amendment cycle which ends May 1, 2015.
