Chris Sagers, C|M|Law’s James A. Thomas Distinguished Professor of Law, was quoted in Friday’s New York Times concerning the pending merger proposal between U.S. Airways and American Airlines. Sagers testified about the merger before the U.S. House of Representatives in February telling an antitrust subcommittee that the merger was anticompetitive and would hurt consumers and labor. The U.S. Justice Department apparently agrees, as it filed suit to block the merger on Tuesday. In today’s story, Sagers comments on aspects of the merger, its industry context, and the Justice Department’s strategy.
