Pepper Hamilton Alert: AMEX Antisteering Provisions Upheld as Legal By Supreme Court
On June 25, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that American Express’s contractual “antisteering provisions” did not violate section 1 of the Sherman Act.1 In a 5-4 decision split along ideological lines, the conservative justices in the majority determined that the plaintiffs did not carry their burden of showing that Amex’s antisteering provisions result in anticompetitive effects in a properly defined product market. Antisteering is the practice by which one credit card company prohibits a merchant from encouraging customers to use another credit card company’s card. The Supreme Court’s ruling confirmed that relevant market definition is king, the “rule of reason” analysis for antitrust claims remains the dominant standard, and the dynamics of a specific industry are key to that analysis. In particular, the Court signaled a hostility to rule of reason challenges where markets have experienced rapid increases in output and strong innovation, even if a plaintiff can arguably point to certain price increases.
