Currently there are several accepted measures, with different courts following different standards. According to Guiltinan (1996), state courts follow some variation of average variable costs, or average total costs.

Notes on David Einhorn: The Predator in a Cute T-Shirt | Deep ...
I received an email a while back from Jim Brickman, a crony of short selling hedge fund manager David Einhorn, demanding that I post the Securities and Exchange Commission inspector general’s report on the commission’s investigation of Allied Capital. According to Brickman, the report proves that Einhorn was right about Allied being a massive fraud. Moreover, says Brickman, the report definitively establishes that Einhorn did not seek to drive down Allied’s stock price. The report, which I gladly post below, does nothing of the sort. I will discuss the report in further detail, but first a little history. Eight years ago, ... market research, surveys and trends

Joe Moore, Champion of Progressivism, Defends Pro-Walmart Vote
of the 49th Ward the country's most valuable progressive local official. The bestowing of this distinction upon Moore sent some Rogers Park residents into a tizzy . (Although the extent to which residents were actually upset is difficult to gauge--in the 21st century one yahoo's pissed-off blog post can become fodder for reports of residents foaming at the mouth, ready to march up Sheridan Avenue with pitchforks to Moore's office.) Moore has always been a somewhat polarizing figure--folks tend to really, really like him, or really, really hate him.
