Paul Swanson Shares Insights with Law Week Colorado on SCOTUS Case involving FTC Powers

Holland & Hart antitrust and trade regulation partner Paul Swanson was quoted in Law Week Colorado’s Jan. 18 article entitled, “Supreme Court Hears Case on FTC’s Enforcement Power.” The U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments on Jan. 13 in a case questioning the Federal Trade Commission’s ability to seek monetary relief when it takes companies to court over consumer protection violations. Swanson discusses how “[t]he Supreme Court now is faced with decades of pretty consistent case law that says injunctive power includes power to do other equitable remedies, including restitution. Yet the statute on its face really only talks about injunctions and does not speak more broadly about all equitable powers.”
