DeHoog v. Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV, 16-35912

Affirmed the dismissal of a private antitrust action brought by consumers seeking to enjoin the largest U.S. beer producer from acquiring the second largest. The consumers argued in this action brought under section 7 of the Clayton Act that the merger would lessen competition in the U.S. beer market. Concluding that they failed to state a claim, the Ninth Circuit emphasized that the U.S. Department of Justice, as a condition of approving the merger, had required the company being acquired to divest entirely its domestic beer business.
