Defended eight ERISA plan sponsors and medical insurers

Defended eight ERISA plan sponsors and medical insurers (including Blue Cross plans) in an antitrust action by an out-of-program mental health care provider claiming that a wide-ranging conspiracy existed among scores of insurers, plan administrators, and plan sponsors to establish agreed compensation standards that foreclosed competition from non-PPO providers.  Our clients and most of the complaint were dismissed, which was upheld on appeal to the Ninth Circuit.
