Sanchez v. United States
United States Supreme Court; Case No. 19-288
The legislative history of the Sherman Act strongly supports the petition in this case. That history shows that the framers of the Sherman Act intended for juries to decide whether any particular contract or combination was in restraint of trade. Furthermore, the need for this Court to answer the question presented is particularly pressing because the government is bringing increasing numbers of criminal antitrust prosecutions, and persistent calls for still more aggressive enforcement indicate that those numbers will rise even further.
