States battle Weyerhaeuser argument

Competition – The U.S. Supreme Court will hear the timber giant’s appeal for a tighter test on predatory bids
The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments next month about a ruling that Oregon and seven other states say is critical in stopping big companies from getting away with illegal monopolies in forest products, agriculture and high-tech goods. Attorneys general from Oregon, California, Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, West Virginia and Wisconsin recently submitted a court brief that comes down against an argument by Weyerhaeuser Co., the timber giant. The case has caught national attention as a rare antitrust case to make it to the nation’s highest court. As with all cases before the Supreme Court, the Weyerhaeuser case could set a precedent governing business competition nationwide.
