Maryland Daily Record Article About Leegin Repealer

The Maryland Daily Record published this article about resale price maintenance under Maryland's recently revised Antitrust Laws. The article was written by David Hamilton and Jason Hicks, antitrust and business litigation attorneys at Womble Carlyle. Hamilton and Hicks conclude that Maryland's new law raises the stakes for national manufacturers whose products are sold in Maryland:
Understanding and complying with federal antitrust laws is no longer enough. Beginning Oct. 1, national manufacturers and suppliers will also have to evaluate their policies under Maryland’s more strict standards. Failure to do so may result in the automatic imposition of a treble damages award under Maryland law.
