Sacramento Bee – US court halts contentious law on contact lens price-fixing
The measure halted by the appeals court would allow 1-800 Contacts, one of the nation’s biggest lens suppliers, to disregard minimum prices set by the manufacturers and sell discount lenses across state lines, according to Steve DelBianco, executive director of the trade group NetChoice.
That would be good for customers because they’d be paying less for their contacts, he says. But the manufacturers argue setting minimum prices protects eye doctors from being undercut.
