Antitrust News: Blumenthal Takes on the ACC

The complaint in University of Connecticut v. University of Miami is now available online. Just as I predicted last night on the radio, Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal has brought an antitrust-related claim to stop the "Shalala Three" from defecting to the ACC. Most of the complaint, to be fair, is your garden variety tort claims, but one count argues UConn was injured by the defendants' violation of Connecticut's "unfair competition" law. Of course, that claim is wholly unrelated to the rest of the claim, much of which appears to present triable questions of fact and law.
