We prove an $L^p$ compactness result for the gain parts of the linearized Boltzmann collision operator associated with weakly cutoff collision kernels that derive from a power-law intermolecular potential. We replace the Grad cutoff assumption previously made by Caflisch [1], Golse and Poupaud [7], and Guo [11] with a weaker local integrability assumption. This class includes all classical kernels to which the DiPerna-Lions theory applies that derive from a repulsive inverse-power intermolecular potential. In particular, our approach allows the treatment of both hard and soft potential cases.
