Chris Sagers, the James A. Thomas Professor of Law, spoke with various news outlets recently about ongoing antitrust matters. He spoke with both Bloomberg and the trade journal Comm Daily about the Justice Department’s appeal of the high-profile loss in its challenge to the merger of AT&T and Time Warner.
He spoke with the widely read technology blog Ars Technica about a potentially spectacular new antitrust suit just filed by the failed ride-share firm Sidecar against Uber, and he commented for the Washington Examiner on a federal judge’s notable criticism of a government approval of the CVS-Aetna merger.
Finally, he spoke with Reorg M&A, a trade publication of Reorg Research, Inc., about the unusual litigation developments in the Federal Trade Commission’s antitrust challenge to the merger of two industrial pigment manufacturers, Tronox and Cristal. The significance of the case concerns ongoing uncertainties over the Commission’s in-house adjudication procedures before Administrative Law Judges.
