On July 21, 2023, WLF filed an amicus brief urging the Second Circuit to affirm a decision dismissing the plaintiffs’ baseless antitrust complaint. WLF’s brief explains why the court should disregard an amicus brief filed by the FTC, which lacks credibility. The Commission continues to advance arguments that the Supreme Court has rejected, ignores its own legal and ethical guidance, and overlooks its actions on the deals at issue in the case. WLF’s brief also explains that, contrary to its averments, the FTC lacks any expertise in construing Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12.
