O’Melveny’s Pearl Pens Article on Antitrust Statute of Limitations for Law360February 27, 2013
O’Melveny & Myers’ James Bo Pearl wrote an article, “Antitrust Statute Of Limitations: A Limit Only In Theory,” for the February 25, 2013, issue of Law360. The piece delves into the potential effect Bell Atlantic Corp. v. Twombly could have on Sherman Act violations. The Twombly ruling’s heightened pleading standard could limit the costs of discovery and help clarify the statute of limitations for bringing antitrust violations, keeping baseless claims from clogging the courts, the article said.
