Partner Tara Reinhart, of counsel Jonathan Marcus and associate Daniel O'Connell discuss the potential impact of AMG Capital Management, which the U.S. Supreme Court heard on January 13, 2021. The case could substantially curtail the primary authority the Federal Trade Commission relies on to seek monetary relief from defendants in federal court. While the agency historically has pursued and obtained this type of relief, the Court’s certiorari grant has cast doubt on the FTC’s authority to do so.
