Michigan Antitrust Laws
Antitrust laws are intended to foster competition by discouraging large corporate mergers and other maneuvers that limit consumer choice. A "trust" is large company with little to no competition, such as a monopoly. Michigan antitrust laws are encoded in the state's Antitrust Reform Act, which allows for private lawsuits and enforces a four-year statute of limitations in which to file a claim.
