On Tuesday, Dec. 18, Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear signed emergency regulations banning new forms of synthetic marijuana. Synthetic marijuana is made of legal chemicals, but mimics the effects of cocaine, methamphetamine and other controlled substances. The regulations, which take effect immediately, are intended to step up the fight against synthetic drugs and are generally aimed at people trying to avoid arrest by tweaking drugs that mimic the highs of marijuana.

Government authorities in the U.S. and around the world are increasingly investigating corrupt practices and enforcing anti-bribery rules. In the U.S., the principal standard is the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), which prohibits payments to officials of a foreign government, or its instrumentality, for the purpose of obtaining or retaining business. As can be seen from the summaries below, some of the efforts have been successful, while others have not. In any case, this is an area of the law that is receiving increased attention from governments around the world.

The slow, but steady, demise of the presumption of market power by patent holders in the world of antitrust has reached its inevitable end. In an 8-0 decision issued in March 2006, the U.S. Supreme Court eliminated the judicial presumption that holders of patents have the necessary market power to restrain competition through the use of tying arrangements.

Texaco Inc. and Shell Oil Co. collaborated in a joint venture, Equilon Enterprises, to refine and sell gasoline in the western U.S. under the two companies’ original brand names. After Equilon set a single price for both brands, service station owners, using the name of Texaco and Shell Oil, brought suit against Texaco and Shell Oil alleging that, by unifying gas prices under the two brands, the companies had violated the per se rule against price fixing long recognized under the Sherman Act. Granting summary judgment, the District Court determined that the rule of reason, rather than a per se rule, governs the claim, and that, by eschewing rule of reason analysis, the service station owners had failed to raise a triable issue of fact. The Ninth Circuit reversed, characterizing the position of Texaco and Shell as a request for an exception to the per se price-fixing prohibition, and rejecting that request.
