The article reports on the U.S. Supreme Court's rejection of a challenge filed by Allstate Corp. against a law that restricts insurance companies to own automobile collision-repair shops. It cites an argument filed by Allstate Corp. that the law aims to protect smaller in-state collision repair shops from insurance competition and violates Constitutional restrictions on state regulation of interstate commerce. In its rebuttal, the U.S. District Court says that the law is not unconstitutional since it was not based on domicile but on business form.
