Definition

An abbreviated rule-of-reason analysis used to determine whether a particular business arrangement violates the Sherman Antitrust Act. This intermediate standard applies where the anticompetitive nature of a restraint is obvious without complex economic analysis, but applying the per se rule is inappropriate due to contextual factors, such as restraints involving professional organizations or nonprofit entities.
