The Ninth Circuit, in AT&T Mobility LLC v. AU Optronics Corp., No. 11-16188 (9th Cir. Feb. 14, 2013), held that the Cartwright Act (the California antitrust law) applies, consistent with due process, to conspiratorial conduct that took place in California even though plaintiffs (indirectly) purchased the price-fixed goods outside of California. This decision demonstrates the breadth of the Cartwright Act to reach purchases outside of California as long as “defendant’s conspiratorial conduct was sufficiently connected to California.”
