- Howard Shelanski, Deputy Director for Antitrust in the FTC Bureau of Economics, testified on June 15, 2010, before the House Subcommittee on Courts and Competition Policy recommending Congressional action to ensure that the recent Trinko and Credit Suisse Supreme Court decisions are not used to limit public antitrust enforcement actions brought by the FTC and DOJ in regulated industries such as telecommunications. In his testimony, Shelanski noted that public antitrust enforcement actions are more likely than private litigation to avoid claims that will interfere with regulation or fail to yield net benefits.
