The Antitrust Division’s Amnesty Program: An Update

February 7, 2011

The Department of Justice's Antitrust Division Criminal Enforcement Section had another banner year in 2010. The Section collected hundreds of millions of dollars in fines through criminal price-fixing investigations involving the TFT-LCD (Flat-Panel) industry, international-airline transportation, environmental services, and municipal bonds, among others. The Section also issued dozens of indictments and secured several dozen corporate and individual pleas, while continuing to press for jail time for non-cooperative, culpable officers and employees.
