Professor Sagers Quoted on Musk Twitter Acquisition

Chris Sagers, the James A. Thomas Professor of Law, was quoted in Bloomberg this week in coverage of Elon Musk’s acquisition of the social media platform Twitter. Asked about antitrust aspects of the deal, Sagers explained that federal enforcers would not likely challenge the deal on antitrust grounds. As he explained, neither Musk nor his affiliates appear to own assets that currently compete with Twitter. Moreover, the speech and content concerns that have most troubled critics likely won’t be perceived as antitrust problems.
