In dissent, Justices Neil Gorsuch, John Roberts, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito said court precedent should have blocked the lawsuit.

“This court held that an antitrust plaintiff can’t sue a defendant for overcharging someone else who might (or might not) have passed on all (or come) of the overcharge to him,” Gorsuch wrote. “This replaces a rule of proximate cause and economic reality with an easily manipulated and formalistic rule of contractual privity.”
