Chapter Summary


This chapter, Federal Trade Commission Adjudicative Proceedings, addresses the adjudicative process from initial jurisdictional considerations through to reopening after proceedings have concluded.

Specifically, the chapter begins with consideration of jurisdictional issues including the Commission's ability to bring proceedings against persons, partnerships or corporations suspected of engaging in unfair methods of competition or unfair or deceptive acts or practices affecting commerce. The chapter addresses initiation of proceedings including pleadings and intervention. It moves on to look at motions. The chapter then discusses discovery and compulsory processes including consideration of depositions, interrogatories, subpoenas, sanctions for noncompliance, and protective orders and confidentiality issues. It addresses adjudicative hearings, as well as decisions and appeals to the Commission. The chapter considers compliance reports, as well as the procedures for reopening proceedings by either the Commission or upon the request of a party.

Antitrust Laws and Trade Regulation (Matthew Bender) provides essential expert legal analysis, underlying statutory and regulatory sources, and discussions of current developments in this field. Coverage includes types and analysis of antitrust violations; exemptions to the antitrust laws; treatment of specific industries such as telecommunications, financial institutions, transportation and health care; reviews of the antitrust laws of all 50 states; and systematic analyses of the competition laws of the European Union and its Member States.
