[Ed. note -- Sorry for the delay; Jon and I were both out late last week.]
United States v. Hsuing, No. 12-10492 (McKeown with Thomas and Kendall, D.J.).
This appeal arises from a rare criminal antitrust prosecution. Taiwanese and South Korean individuals and companies conspired in violation of the Sherman Anti-Trust to fix prices on LCDs. The defenses revolved around the reach of the antitrust offense off shore and venue. The 9th affirmed the convictions and sentence. The 9th found that there was global reach of jurisdiction if it affected US consumers. Venue was also proper. The 9th also found invited error in the jury instructions.
