NCFC Files Amicus Brief in Antitrust Case


NCFC on July 8 filed an amicus curiae (“friend of the court”) brief in an antitrust case involving Eastern Mushroom Marketing Cooperative, the largest mushroom farmer cooperative in the United States. NCFC’s brief focuses on the correct interpretation of the Capper-Volstead Act’s protections for farmer cooperatives. In its brief, NCFC did not take a position on the underlying facts involved in the case, but instead addressed three specific issues with regard to interpretation of the Capper-Volstead Act: vertical integration; the 50% rule; and member liability for predatory conduct.

The brief is the work of several members of NCFC’s Legal, Tax & Accounting Committee.
