On August 17, 2011, a district court rejected a challenge to short-term exclusive agreements between an auto parts seller and its distributors. In SPX Corp. v. Mastercool, U.S.A., Inc., Mastercool counterclaimed that even though SPX’s exclusive contracts were short-term and terminable at will, their overall effect of these agreements was to foreclose competition. The court rejected this argument, holding that such exclusivity agreements were "presumptively lawful" and complaints about such contracts could not plausibly support an antitrust claim.
