Antitrust Laws- Judicial Relief for Violations of Section Seven of the Clayton Act – Disenfranchisement in United States v. E. I. du Pont de Nemours & Co.

This comment will approach section 7 relief questions and solutions primarily in the light of du Pont’s unique facts, which included a vertical stock acquisition made thirty years before the judicial proceeding plus the complicating factors of vast financial interests, numerous innocent investors and several corporate interrelationships. Thereby were posed complex problems regarding (1) parties to the relief determination, (2) interests to be affected by the decree and (3) the manner of affecting those interests.
