Russ Wofford Article on Noerr-Pennington Doctrine Published in the Exemptions & Immunities Committee Newsletter

The October 2003 issue of the Exemptions & Immunities Committee Newsletter published the article, "The Emerging 'Pattern Litigation' Exception To The
Noerr-Pennington Antitrust Defense," co-authored by Russ Wofford. The article, a longer version of which is scheduled for publication in the Wayne Law Review, explores the little-noticed development of a new exception to the Noerr-Pennington doctrine.

The Noerr-Pennington doctrine provides a complete, First Amendment-related defense to antitrust claims arising from the defendent's petitions to the government, whether in the form of lobbying, filing lawsuits or seeking administrative action. The Newsletter is a publication of the American Bar Association's Section of Antitrust Law.
