C|M|LAW’s James A. Thomas Distinguished Professor of Law Chris Sagers was quoted in Saturday’s New York Times, in James Stewart’s “Common Sense” column, entitled Baffling About-Face in American-US Airways Merger.  The article concerned the settlement of a federal challenge to the merger of U.S. Airways and American Airlines.

“The settlement is hard to square with the original complaint, ” said Christopher L. Sagers, an antitrust professor at Cleveland-Marshall College of Law.

He testified in Congress last March about the potential harm to consumers if the merger went ahead. “I have a lot of respect for the people in the antitrust division,” he said this week, “But I’m perplexed, and so are a lot of other people. I’m afraid the merger is likely to result in some real consumer harm.”
