Introductory Note

A word about sources may be useful to introduce this index. The fullest record of American cases is, of course, to be found in the official or national law-reports, and the practising lawyer or law student will have these reports available. As this book is not designed primarily for professional lawyers, it has not been thought necessary to give the official or national reporter citations for the cases. Armed with the name of the case, the court and the date from the index below (as well as the secondary sources given below), the serious student will in any case have no great difficulty in tracing the citations.

The reader who simply wishes to study the court opinions quoted in this book in more detail will probably find the secondary sources more convenient. For a general conspectus of the subject and a convenient source of the older cases, he will want a good legal textbook. There are several excellent ones, my own greatest debts being owed to:

S. C. Oppenheim, Cases on Federal Anti-trust Laws, American Casebook Series ( New York, West Publishing Co., 1948)1 and M. Handler, Cases and other Materials on Trade Regulation, University Casebook Series ( New York, Foundation Press, 1947).

Those who compile textbooks suffer, as will the present author, from the impossibility of being completely up-to-date. The indispensable source for the recent cases is the series of volumes of Trade Cases, published annually by the Commerce Clearing House, Chicago, and the means of keeping up-to-date is to consult these volumes and the same company's current Trade Regulation Reports.

In addition many commentaries give lavish citations of cases. Perhaps the most useful is The Report of the Attorney General's National Committee to Study the Antitrust Laws( Washington, 1935).

It may be helpful to mention also the annual Symposia of the Section on Antitrust Law of the New York State Bar Association published by Commerce Clearing House, and in particular the volume entitled How to Comply with the Antitrust Laws (Commerce Clearing House, 1954) which incorporates the Symposium for 1954.

In the index which follows cases in which the United States or the Federal Trade Commission was the plaintiff are listed under the name of the other party.

S.C.Supreme Court
Cir.Circuit Court of Appeals (preceded by figure indicating the circuit concerned
or D.C. for District of Columbia)
D.Federal District Court (followed by abbreviation for State concerned, for
example N.Y., Mass., etc.)
F.T.C.Federal Trade Commission
Oppenheim has a companion volume on Unfair Trade Practices which deals among other things with the cases on resale-price maintenance and price-discrimination. (American Casebook Series, New York, West Publishing Company, 1950).
