Articles / March 4, 2019

Partner Carl Hittinger and Counsel Julian Perlman authored an article published March 1, 2019, by The Legal Intelligencer. The article, “Circuit Judge Thomas Vanaskie’s Antitrust Legacy: 2 Significant Cases,” examines opinions issued by recently retired Third Circuit and former MDPA Chief Judge Vanaskie. The article discusses Vanaskie’s thorough and fair-minded opinions in the epic antitrust dispute between competitors Santana Products and Bobrick Washroom Equipment in the late 1990s through the early 2000s (in which Carl Hittinger was lead counsel for Bobrick). Hittinger and Perlman also consider Vanaskie’s decisions in a precedential antitrust class action dispute involving the adhesive label industry. Both cases serve as role models for other judges to follow.
