The United States Supreme Court has held, in a private action under the Clayton Act, that a cause of action was stated where it was alleged that a group of interstate motor carriers conspired to monopolize trade and commerce in the transportation of goods by engaging in concerned activities to institute actions in state and federal courts and agencies to resist and defeat plaintiff's applications for operating licenses.
California Motor Transport Co. v. Trucking Unlimited, 404 U.S. 508 (1972).
