In two cases, McKesson & Robbins v. Government Employees Department Store, Inc.,' and its companion, Plough, Inc. v. Hogue & Knott Super Market, the challenge to resale price maintenance, already successful in twenty-three other states, was brought to the Tennessee Supreme Court by appeals from two opinions holding the Tennessee Fair Trade Law unconstitutional. The historical background of fair trade legislation and the national controversy surrounding it since 1951 provide essential elements of perspective for consideration of these two cases.
