Let’s Make a Deal: The Tipline for 15 March 2022

The US District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia has a Monty Hall problem. The court tasked with restoring competition lost by Jeld-Wen’s 2012 acquisition of Craftmaster must decide which bidders to approve for the required divestiture. Behind one door may be a viable third competitor to the doorskin duopoly.

Also in Tipline, the Department of Justice names its first-ever director of human capital and Clifford Chance poaches a hospital merger specialist.
