Eisen v. Carlisle & Jacquelin Case Brief

Facts of the Case

Petitioner was an odd lot trader of securities. Respondents were brokerage firms used by petitioner and others. Alleging that respondents had monopolized odd lot trading and set the differential at an excessive level in violation of the antitrust and securities law, petitioner filed a class action lawsuit. After disagreement between the lower court as to whether a class action could be maintained, the court granted certiorari.


Was there race-based discrimination of the type Batson v. Kentucky prohibits in the jury selection process of Foster’s trial?
