U.S. Supreme Court
Lower Court Opinion

U.S. Chamber files amicus brief in case regarding Airline Deregulation Act preemption
September 21, 2021
The U.S. Chamber filed an amicus brief urging the Supreme Court to review and reverse a Ninth Circuit decision holding that the Airline Deregulation Act and FAAAA preempt only those state laws that bind an airline to a particular price, route, or service, as opposed to those that have a significant impact on airline prices, routes, and services. Gregory G. Garre, Caroline A. Flynn, and Michael Clemente of Latham & Watkins LLP and the U.S. Chamber’s Litigation Center served as co-counsel for the U.S. Chamber.
