A district court ruled that a manufacturer of food products violated the Robinson-Patman Act by offering a global food services company lower prices than those made available to a domestic distributor. Another district court rejected price discrimination claims brought by buyers of Apple's iPhones.

Other recent antitrust developments of note included the Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission's recommendation to the Supreme Court not to review a case characterizing the joint licensing of sports teams' logos as the conduct of a single entity not subject to §1 of the Sherman Act.
