THE CASE THAT WOULDN’T DIE - The Federal Trade Commission’s antitrust case against Qualcomm Inc. has been dead for years, slain by a 2020 Ninth Circuit opinion. But a consumer class action on behalf of millions of smartphone users is still breathing. As Law.com’s Scott Graham reports, consumers represented by Susman Godfrey, Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy and others refashioned their complaint from a nationwide class pursuing federal claims to a California-only class seeking damages under California antitrust and unfair competition law. The amended complaint alleges Qualcomm illegally paid Apple Inc. to use Qualcomm chips exclusively for several years, stifling competition from companies such as Intel Corp. In a 37-page order issued Jan. 6, Judge Jacqueline Scott Corley of the Northern District of California allowed the exclusive dealing theory to proceed, saying consumers might succeed where the FTC failed.

ON THE RADAR - Varnum filed a lawsuit against the Detroit Institute of Arts on Tuesday in Michigan Eastern District Court. The suit, brought on behalf of Brokerarte Capital, seeks to recover ‘Liseuse De Romans,’ a painting by Vincent Van Gogh, that is currently in the defendant’s possession on loan from a private collection. The complaint contends that the plaintiff purchased the painting and transferred possession, but not the title, to a third party, who allegedly absconded with the painting in 2017. Counsel have not yet appeared for the defendant. The case is 2:23-cv-10066, Brokerarte Capital Partners, LLC v. Detroit Institute of Arts. Stay up on the latest deals and litigation with the new Law.com Radar
