Sagers on NPR’s Marketplace, Other Venues, to Discuss Antitrust Issues

Chris Sagers, the James A. Thomas Professor of Law, spoke with NPR’s Marketplace Morning Report for a story about the just-announced merger of the meal delivery service GrubHub with a European firm called JustEats Takeaway. The deal was announced only shortly after merger talks fell apart between GrubHub and UberEats, a deal that apparently foundered on antitrust concerns. Not only would that earlier deal have combined two of the three major players that dominate food delivery in the United States, but the two remaining dominant players, UberEats and DoorDash, would have had the same major investor, the Japanese investment firm SoftBank.

Sagers also spoke with Law360 about a recent challenge to patent abuses by the pharmaceutical giant AbbVie and with Congressional Quarterly/Roll Call about a recent letter by Senator Josh Hawley, urging the Federal Trade Commission to investigate a wildly popular new video-sharing app from China, called Zynn.
