The Donnelly Act is the primary state antitrust law in New York. The Act mirrors federal antitrust law, and prohibits any contract, agreement, arrangement, or combination that creates or maintains a monopoly or retrains competition.
Under the Donnelly Act, private parties can sue companies or individuals who participated in anti-competitive activity.
