The State of Florida has enacted state criminal prohibitions against the restraint of trade or commerce. The legislation makes every contract, combination, or conspiracy in restraint of trade a state crime, adopting language that closely tracks that of the Sherman Act. State violations of the antitrust provisions can be prosecuted alongside federal charges, which gives prosecutors added ammunition with the threat of bringing additional state charges to the federal prosecution.
