Varney, in her first public speech after being confirmed as Assistant Attorney General for the DOJ's Antitrust Division, to withdraw the Antitrust Division's controversial report discussing conduct by monopolists and dominant firms in the June 12, 2009 issue of BNA's Antitrust & Trade Regulation Report.
