Simpson v. Union Oil Co. of California
Decided October 27, 1969
396 U.S. 13
The reservation in Simpson v. Union Oil Co.,377 U. S. 13, of the question whether there might be any equities that would warrant only prospective application in damage suits of the rule governing price-fixing of nonpatented articles by the "consignment" device, announced therein, was not intended to deny the fruits of successful litigation to petitioner. The question was reserved for possible application in other cases where product distribution was structured on different considerations.
Certiorari granted; 411 F.2d 897, reversed.
