Diane Hazel Comments on FTC-Amazon Antitrust Suit

Foley & Lardner LLP partner Diane Hazel is quoted in the Reuters article, “FTC’s Amazon antitrust lawsuit faces high bar in US court – experts,” commenting on the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and 17 state attorney generals’ recently filed lawsuit against, Inc. alleging that the online retail and technology company is a monopolist engaged in anticompetitive behavior.

Hazel explained that as part of the case, Amazon will have a chance to assert pro-competitive justifications for its alleged conduct, noting that the company would need to show its reasons are “legitimate” to count the FTC’s claims.
