Finding an appropriate U.S. forum for an international antitrust case is unnecessarily complicated. Congress, with its intent to effectuate broad enforcement of the antitrust laws, has provided statutory authority, which allows suit in any judicial district so long as the antitrust defendant has minimum contacts with the United States. Thus far the courts have generally ignored the solution provided by Congress in favor of the long-arm statutes of the state legislature. This state of affairs must be corrected in order to prohibit a jurisdictional windfall to alien defendants that was not intended by Congress.
