Abstract

In areas where federal, state, or local governments have adopted economic or social policies that conflict with open competition, Congress sometimes has resolved these conflicts by creating explicit statutory exemptions - often industry-specific - from the antitrust laws. In the absence of a specific statutory exemption, federal courts have developed exemptions and immunities for conduct involving some degree of government action. These exemptions and immunities derive from principles of federalism and other constitutional considerations, and from the related doctrine of deference to government decision making.

Keywords: State Action Doctrine, Noerr-Pennington Immunity, legislative process, administrative process, rulemaking, enforcement, ministerial filings, adjudicatory process, private organizations, economically motivated boycotts, U.S. Courts, foreign governments, foreign courts, sham exception
