New Orleans, Louisiana
January 27-28, 1977
An antitrust case, with parties, facts, pre-trial pro-
ceedings, judge, jury, able trial counsel and all the extras
will be presented at a National Institute to be co-spon-
sored by the Section of Litigation and the Antitrust Law
Section at the Fairmont Hotel in New Orleans on January
27 and 28, 1977. The program promises to provide a
lawyer interested in antitrust law with the unique op-
portunity to observe a trial of an entire antitrust pro-
ceeding and benefit from the performances and com-
mentary of leading antitrust lawyers across the country.
Facts. The assumed set of facts will involve a dealer-
termination case. Professors James Meeks and Dorsey
Ellis, Jr. of the University of Iowa Law School are pre-
paring a full set of materials. Each attendee will receive
a booklet containing the complaint, answer, abbreviated
interrogatories and their answers, Rule 34 motions and
answers, deposition testimony, correspondence and
internal memoranda, requests to admit, experts' reports
and pre-trial memoranda of the parties.
Participants. Deputy Attorney General and former
U.S. District Judge, the Honorable Harold R. Tyler, Jr.
will preside. Counsel for the plaintiff will be Maxwell
Blecher, Los Angeles, and William Farmer, San Fran-
cisco. Defendant's counsel are Merrell Clark, New York
City, and J. 0. von Kalinowski, Los Angeles.
Panelists. In addition to the trial participants, a dis-
tinguished group of panelists will comment on the trial
action as it occurs. In addition, the panelists will be pre-
pared to discuss particular subjects relating to the trial
of an antitrust case that may not be illustrated in the
course of the Institute's proceedings. Such topics may
include the use of expert witnesses, the use of computers
in trial preparation, the use of paraprofessionals in trial
preparation, pre-trial motion practice, handling docu-
ments at the trial, negotiating settlements, staff morale
in a big case and preparation for the unexpected com-
plications introduced by multiple parties. The panelists
will be: Hon. Sam Pointer, U.S.D.J., Ala.; Hon. Alvin
Rubin, U.S.D.J., La.; Irwin Alterman, Detroit; William

Barnett, Houston; Fred Bartlit, Chicago; Taylor Briggs,
New York; Macdonald Flinn, New York; John French,
Minneapolis; J. V. Patrick, Birmingham; Jerrold Salz-
man, Chicago; John Tomlinson, Seattle. Panelists will
be divided into four panels and each panel will be
moderated by the past chairman or present chairman
of the co-sponsoring Litigation and Antitrust Law Sec-
tions-Messrs. Robert Hanley, Paul Connolly, Edwin
Rockefeller and Ira Millstein.
Plan to Attend. We urge Section members to reserve
the dates of January 27 and 28, 1977 and plan to attend
this Institute. A registration form for this National In-
stitute is on the last page of this issue. Please complete it
