THE LATEST: DOJ Trial Machine is Staffed Up, Fired Up

By on February 8, 2017


  • The DOJ Antitrust Division scored another trial win — this time in a real estate foreclosure bid rigging case.
  • Yesterday’s win follows on the heels of Division wins in a Puerto Rico bus transportation bid rigging/fraud case (DC Office, Criminal I), enjoining of a significant merger (DC Office, Lit I), corruption prosecution of an environmental remediator (New York Office), and another real estate auction case (San Francisco Office).


  • The Division is growing a crop of trial-ready and eager attorneys in multiple offices. They can be expected not to shy away from a courtroom challenge.
