Washington has been recognized as one of the leading state jurisdictions in which a private organization or party may acquire relief from monopolistic practices of voluntary medical associations. A recent case seems to broaden the available grounds upon which such associations may be subjected to liability. The case also appears to provide some guides for the interpretation of the recently enacted Consumer Protection Act.
