Electronic Trading Grp., LLC v. Banc of Am. Secs. LLC, No. 08-0420
In an antitrust action by a short seller against "prime brokers" in short sale transactions alleging that the prime brokers arbitrarily designated certain securities as "hard to borrow" and then fixed the price for borrowing them, dismissal of the complaint is affirmed where federal securities law implicitly precluded application of the antitrust law to the alleged anticompetitive conduct.
