Obama's Antitrust Stimulus: The First 6 Months

Law360: Obama's Antitrust Stimulus

Law360, New York (August 26, 2009) -- During the presidential campaign, candidate Obama promised more vigorous enforcement of the antitrust laws. President Obama and his new administration have fulfilled that pledge.

While some are questioning the effectiveness of the financial stimulus packages, the “antitrust stimulus” is clearly being felt, with new pro-enforcement leadership at the U.S. Department of Justice Antitrust Division and the Federal Trade Commission.

Even Congress is joining in by introducing bills to overturn recent Supreme Court antitrust decisions favorable to defendants and by urging more aggressive enforcement of the antitrust laws.
