Competition kickoff: The Tipline for 14 September 2018

14 September 2018

Happy Friday. We’ve got a pair of stories from the first of the Federal Trade Commission’s series of hearings evaluating the state of competition enforcement. We also look at the federal court opinion, now unsealed, that granted the agency a preliminary injunction against the Tronox/Cristal merger. Unfortunately, the FTC hearings set for today have been postponed due to concerns about Hurricane Florence, but we will have more FTC v Tronox coverage in the briefing on Monday from closing arguments in the administrative proceeding.
