Abstract

This Comment begins with an introduction of the different enforcement provisions available to the Federal Trade Commission and provides a brief history on the FTC’s use of Section 13(b). Specifically, this Comment focuses on the Seventh Circuit’s opinion in FTC v. Credit Bureau and argues that the court, despite overturning long-standing precedent, got it right. The Comment concludes by addressing the future implications of the Credit Bureau decision on FTC enforcement mechanisms and strategies.
