On August 16, 2010, the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit issued its long-awaited decision in In re Insurance Brokerage Antitrust Litigation. The lengthy decision addressed the application of both the McCarran-Ferguson Act’s antitrust exemption and Twombly’s pleading standard to alleged hub-and-spoke conspiracies in the insurance industry.
This panel discussion brings together experienced insurance-antitrust practitioners, including counsel from the plaintiff and defendant sides of the Insurance Brokerage case, to discuss the implications of the decision, both on the litigants and the industry in general. We expect a lively discussion and exchange of views, and we hope that you can join us.
