Antitrust claims in a class action case filed against Amazon in U.S. Federal District Court will largely proceed, after the Court allowed most of the consumers’ pricing claims to survive a motion for summary judgment.

It is widely recognized that MFNs, in fact, often serve procompetitive purposes.
