311 U.S. 255

The complaint chanroblesvirtualawlibrary

alleged also, as part of the general conspiracy, local acts of the defendants aimed at preventing the complainant from obtaining sites for posting and signs. Injury and damage to the complainant, including loss of business and profits, were alleged.


1. The damage alleged could not be regarded as having been the consequence solely of the local acts of the defendants, and the allegations of damage, though general, were adequate. P. 311 U. S. 260.

2. It was not necessary, in order to state a cause of action, that the complainant allege it was unable, as a result of defendants' activities, to obtain posters. P. 311 U. S. 261.

109 F.2d 764 reversed.

Certiorari, 310 U.S. 618, to review the affirmance of a judgment dismissing the complaint in a suit for triple damages under the Sherman Antitrust Act.
