National Association of Optometrists and Opticians v. Harris

Petition for certiorari denied on February 19, 2013
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
12-461 9th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2012

Issue: Whether the court of appeals erred in holding that a state regime that reserves a valuable business opportunity to in-state businesses, and excludes out-of-state businesses that compete for the same customers in the same market, can escape meaningful scrutiny simply on the ground that the direct competitors employ different business models or are otherwise deemed differently situated by the state.
