[Robert Connolly writes:] [s]everal months ago wrote a Cartel Capers blog entry (here) discussing a suggested approach for the Seventh Circuit to follow in deciding Motorola Mobility when the Court reheard the case. I also wrote a longer article (here) published in the Competition Policy International’s FTAIA issue. To my surprise and delight, Judge Posner in Motorola Mobility v. AU Optronics, 775 F. 3d 816 (7th Cir. 2015), cited both Cartel Capers and the CPI article. The article was quoted at length in the opinion. This article has now been nominated for a Concurrences writing award.

Unlike many elections where one reluctantly votes for the lesser of two evils, every article nominated is terrific. I am honored to be included in this group. I would appreciate it if you would click on this link and vote for my article.
