Law360: Prof. Calls Qualcomm 5G National Security Fears Baseless

November 27, 2019

O’Melveny filed an amicus brief in the Ninth Circuit on behalf of a group of 40 antitrust scholars supporting the FTC in calling the national security concerns blocking an injunction over Qualcomm’s licensing practices “baseless,” this article reported. As Law360 reported, the brief argues that Qualcomm’s “no license, no chips” policy is illegal because it “creates artificial barriers to entry and competition in the chipset markets.”

The O’Melveny team includes partner Ian Simmons, counsel Benjamin Hendricks, Scott Schaeffer, and associate Brian Quinn.
