This essay analyzes the June 2007 Supreme Court decision of Leegin v. PSKS. That case overruled a 96 year old Supreme Court case, Dr. Miles v. Park & Sons. The Leegin case eliminated Dr. Miles' per se rule in antitrust for minimum resale price maintenance between manufacturers and retailers. The essay examines the history and controversy of Dr. Miles, acts of Congress to circumvent and then restore Dr. Miles, the controversy over the Leegin case, and likely outcomes in the future.
