The Ninth Circuit today affirmed dismissal of an antitrust case for failure to allege an actionable conspiracy under the pleading requirements of Bell Atlantic Corp. v. Twombly, 127 S. Ct. 1955 (2007). Parallel conduct, without more, doesn’t cut the Twombly mustard. Kendall v. Visa U.S.A., Inc., No. 05-16549 (9th Cir. Mar. 7, 2008).
