(1) OKLAHOMA STATE CHIROPRACTIC INDEPENDENT PHYSICIANS ASSOCIATION and (2) LARRY M. BRIDGES, Defendants. Case No 13–CV–21–TCK–TLW COMPLAINT The United States of America, acting under the direction of the Attorney General of the United States, brings this civil antitrust action against Defendants Oklahoma State Chiropractic Independent Physicians Association (‘‘OSCIPA’’) and Larry M. Bridges to obtain equitable and other relief to prevent and remedy violations of Section 1 of the Sherman Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1. Plaintiff alleges: I. NATURE OF THE ACTION 1. Defendant OSCIPA is an association of approximately 350 chiropractors who compete with each other in the sale of chiropractic services. OSCIPA’s members comprise approximately 45 percent of all chiropractors practicing in Oklahoma. Defendant Bridges is OSCIPA’s executive director and manages all of OSCIPA’s activities, including OSCIPA’s contracting with health insurers, health-care provider rental networks, and other payers (collectively ‘‘payers’’), and handles many of OSCIPA’s communications with its members. 2. Since at least 1997, all of OSCIPA’s members have entered into membership PO 00000 Frm 00063 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4439 agreements with OSCIPA that give OSCIPA the right to collectively negotiate rates on its members’ behalf with payers. Since at least 2004, OSCIPA’s membership agreements require its members to suspend all of their pre-existing contracts with those payers with which OSCIPA negotiates contracts. 3. From 2004 to 2011, on behalf of all OSCIPA’s members, Defendants negotiated contracts with at least seven payers that set the prices and price-related terms between OSCIPA’s members and those payers. Defendants’ conduct has raised the prices of chiropractic services and decreased the availability of chiropractic services in Oklahoma. 4. The United States, through this suit, asks this Court to declare Defendants’ conduct illegal and to enter injunctive relief to prevent further injury to consumers of chiropractic services. II. DEFENDANTS 5. OSCIPA is a corporation organized and doing business under the laws of the State of Oklahoma, with its principal place of business in Tulsa. 6. Larry M. Bridges has been employed by OSCIPA as its executive director since at least 1999. As alleged below, Bridges negotiated on behalf of OSCIPA’s members at least seven contracts with payers, and Bridges signed several of those contracts on OSCIPA’s behalf. III. JURISDICTION, VENUE, AND INTERSTATE COMMERCE 7. Plaintiff brings this action pursuant to Section 4 of the Sherman Act, 15 U.S.C. § 4, to obtain equitable and other relief to prevent and restrain Defendants’ violations of Section 1 of the Sherman Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1. 8. The Court has subject-matter jurisdiction over this action under Section 4 of the Sherman Act, 15 U.S.C. § 4, and 28 U.S.C. §§ 1331, 1337(a), and 1345. 9. Defendants have consented to personal jurisdiction and venue in this District. The Court also has personal jurisdiction over each Defendant, and venue is proper in the Northern District of Oklahoma under Section 12 of the Clayton Act, 15 U.S.C. § 22, and 28 U.S.C. § 1391(b), because Defendants are found, have transacted business, and committed acts in furtherance of the alleged violations in this District. A substantial part of the events giving rise to Plaintiff’s claims occurred in this District. 10. Defendants engage in interstate commerce, and their activities—including the conduct alleged in this Complaint— substantially affect interstate commerce. Defendants’ conduct increased prices for chiropractic services that some nonOklahoma residents traveled to Oklahoma to purchase and consume, and which a number of payers paid for across state lines. IV. OTHER CONSPIRATORS 11. Various persons not named as defendants in this action have participated as conspirators with Defendants in the offenses alleged and have performed acts and made statements in furtherance of the alleged conspiracies.
