The Supreme Court’s Ruling on Antitrust Immunity for State Regulatory Boards: North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners v. FTC and Its Implications

Friday, May 1, 2015
3:00 PM-4:15 PM Eastern


This roundtable discussion is brought to you by the Antitrust Practice Group, and is co-sponsored by the Fraud and Abuse; Health Care Liability and Litigation; Health Information and Technology; Hospitals and Health Systems; In-House Counsel; Medical Staff, Credentialing, and Peer Review; Physician Organizations; Regulation, Accreditation, and Payment; and Teaching Hospitals and Academic Medical Centers Practice Groups..

This roundtable discussion will address the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent ruling in North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners v. FTC, in which the Court held that a state professional regulatory board controlled by active market participants in the profession the board regulates cannot claim "state action" antitrust immunity unless the state actively supervises its conduct. The presenters—including counsel for both the Federal Trade Commission and North Carolina Dental—will share their views on the significance of the Supreme Court’s opinion and discuss its implications, including:  

  • What options exist for state regulators that want to avoid antitrust liability for their professional regulatory boards?  
  • What impact will the Supreme Court’s decision have on the willingness of market participants to serve on professional regulatory boards?
  • What does the Supreme Court’s decision mean for market participants who are regulated by these boards?
