Jebaco Inc. v. Harrah's Operating Co., 08-30289

In an action alleging that certain casino companies violated the Sherman Act by dividing the Louisiana casino market and by monopolizing, attempting to monopolize, and conspiring to monopolize that market, judgment on the pleadings for defendants is affirmed where plaintiff allegedly suffered injury only as a would-be competitor, and thus failed to allege antitrust injury.
