Trial Setbacks Are Unlikely to Deter the Antitrust Division from Aggressively Pursuing Labor Cases
April 19, 2022
The Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division is unlikely to be deterred by last week’s trial setbacks.
- Juries acquitted two sets of defendants of antitrust claims involving labor markets.
- The Antitrust Division will continue to pursue labor cases and has three more trials pending.
- The Division is willing to accept some losses in trials as a cost of taking a more aggressive enforcement position.
