    The legal ability to join together in a single federal court has led to many multistate antitrust actions where attorneys general are often joined by the U.S. Department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission and by private litigants including particular companies and class counsel. These efforts are nonetheless limited by resources, unpredictable impacts on in-state businesses and by prudence. Virtually all state antitrust cases settle short of trial.
