U.S. Department of Justice Key Developments
Third Point LLC Settles with U.S. Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission over 2011 Yahoo Disclosures
Aug 24 15
Third Point LLC has settled U.S. regulatory charges that it failed to properly seek antitrust clearance while it built a big stake in Yahoo Inc. in 2011. The settlement, announced by the U.S. Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission, resolves claims that Third Point took five weeks too long to tell antitrust regulators it planned an activist stake in Yahoo, after having crossed a threshold requiring disclosure. Third Point will not pay a fine but entered a five-year agreement to make appropriate disclosures. The FTC vote was 3-2, with the dissenting commissioners saying the New York-based firm should not have been sanctioned.
Sandia Corporation Agrees to Pay $4.7 Million to Resolve Allegations Related to Lobbying Activities
Aug 21 15
U.S. Department of Justice announced that Sandia Corporation has agreed to pay $4,790,042 to resolve allegations that Sandia violated the Byrd Amendment and the False Claims Act by using federal funds for activities related to lobbying Congress and federal agencies to obtain a renewal of its Management and Operating (MandO) Contract with the Department of Energy's (DOE's) National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) to operate the Sandia National Laboratories (SNL). Between 1993 and the present, NNSA contracted with Sandia to manage and operate the SNL, a government-owned, contractor-operated laboratory that is part of the NNSA's nuclear weapons complex, with its main facilities located in Albuquerque and Livermore, California. Between 2008 and 2012, Sandia allegedly used federal funds to support activities to lobby Congress and other federal officials to receive a non-competitive extension of the MandO Contract in violation of a federal law known as the Byrd Amendment, which prohibits the use of federal funds for lobbying. This case was handled by the Civil Division's Commercial Litigation Branch with investigative assistance provided by the DOE's Office of Inspector General. The claims resolved by this settlement are allegations only; there has been no admission of liability.
