Chris Sagers, the James A. Thomas Professor of Law, spoke with various media as events continue to swirl around antitrust developments of the past few weeks.
He participated in a “Washington Bytes Chat,” an online exchange hosted by Forbes, concerning the Supreme Court’s decision in Ohio v. American Express. Other participants were Randy Picker of the University of Chicago, Michael Kades of the Washington Center for Equitable Growth, and Hal Singer of George Washington University. As Sagers told them, “Listening to Clarence Thomas talk about American Express is like listening to Donald Trump talk about Vladimir Putin.”
Sagers also spoke with several outlets about the latest surprising turn in the Justice Department’s challenge to the merger of AT&T and Time Warner. They included Bloomberg, a separate story for Bloomberg Law, and the subscription journals S&P Global Market Intelligence, CTFN and Communications Daily.
He spoke on certain other matters as well, including with BloombergBNA about Microsoft’s proposed acquisition of the software collaboration platform GitHub, and the subscription service Law360 about the antitrust philosophy of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
