FTC Remedial Power Under Scrutiny at U.S. Supreme Court

On Wednesday, January 13, the Supreme Court heard arguments in AMG Capital Management LLC v. Federal Trade Commission.

This case raises the question whether the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has been properly using Section 13(b) of the FTC Act, the provision authorizing requests for preliminary and permanent injunctions where the FTC believes the defendant “is violating, or is about to violate, any provision of law enforced by the Federal Trade Commission,” to obtain monetary relief such as disgorgement or restitution.
