Forbes has a list of names that has added a few new players to the one the Daily Deal reported last week. By including this type of information, does this blog become the antitrust equivalent of Page 6?
Bill Baer - Arnold & Porter
Einer Elhauge - Harvard Law School
Bill Kolasky - WilmerHale
Jon Leibowitz - FTC*
Jan McDavid - Hogan & Hartson
Doug Melamed - WilmerHale.
David Turetsky - Dewey & LeBoeuf
Christine Varney - Hogan & Hartson
* Not to be confused with John Stuart Leibowitz of the Daily Show, who uses a different spelling of his middle name (John Stewart) as his last name for stage purposes. John Stewart does not have an antitrust background but is sharp and witty and might nevertheless make a decent pick too. Recall that one of the best FTC Chairmen of all time was Janet Steiger, who also lacked an antitrust background.
