Dear Department of Justice: Never mind……

Today, the Beat reported “As part of an out-of-court settlement reached last month, American Airlines agreed to withdraw the antitrust complaints against Sabre that it had lodged with the U.S. Justice Department. DOJ in May 2011 confirmed that it had launched a probe into the “possibility of anticompetitive practices in the global distribution systems industry.”

I find it curious that a company can file an antitrust suit with the DOJ and then summarily dismiss it when an out of court settlement is accomplished.

The slow moving train wreck has now been cleared.
