Date Announced for FTC Trial to Block Kroger and Albertsons Merger

We reported last month that the United States Federal Trade Commission (FTC) would be suing to block Kroger’s merger with Albertsons. Following this news, it was recently announced that the trial for this action will take place in August 2024.

U.S. District Judge Adrienne Nelson ordered the trial to start August 26, 2024, in Portland, Oregon, a report from Seeking Alpha detailed. It is expected to last between two to three weeks, according to a court filing, and all parties are directed to confer and file a proposed briefing schedule for the preliminary injunction motion by Friday, March 15.

Following the United States Federal Trade Commission's (FTC) proposed block of Kroger’s merger with Albertsons, it was announced that the trial will take place in August

In late February, the FTC sued to block the nearly $25 billion deal, arguing that it could lead to higher prices for shoppers. Eight states and Washington, DC, joined forces with the regulator to help stop the merger. Previously, Colorado and Washington also filed lawsuits to halt the deal.

We will be sure to keep you informed as we learn more about the merger.
