“Today, we are taking a first step toward freeing American businesses, taxpayers, and consumers from the burden of judgments that no longer protect competition,” said Makan Delrahim, Assistant Attorney General for the Justice Department’s Antitrust Division.  “We will pursue the termination of outdated judgments around the country that presently do little more than clog court dockets, create unnecessary uncertainty for businesses or, in some cases, may actually elicit anti competitive market conditions.”
