Posner Writes 22 Page Antitrust Opinion With No Citations To Caselaw Other Than Underlying Proceedings

April 10th, 2015

Judge Posner’s opinion in Aircraft Check Services Company v. Verizon Wireless has no citations to caselaw in its analysis section. None. Not one. The only citations are to the underly proceedings. After a lengthy blockquote from a previous case that ends on page 5, there is not a single citation to any other case. Forget about any citations to the record. In case you were curious, the case was argued on Feb. 10 and decided on April 9.

Posner being Posner.
