Baker and Pitofsky on Staples/Office Depot

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Jonathan Baker and Robert Pitofsky have just posted an article on SSRN regarding the story behind the Staples/Office Depot case, arguably one of the crown jewels of the Pitofsky FTC period.

ABSTRACT: This book chapter (forthcoming in Antitrust Stories) tells the story of the FTC's successful 1997 effort to block the proposed Staples/Office Depot merger. It describes the competing presentations of the FTC and the merging firms during the preliminary injunction hearing and places that trial in a broader context.
