Amazon Antitrust Suit in DC Should Be Revived, U.S. Tells Judge

The Biden administration asked a judge to revive a lawsuit by Washington, D.C., accusing Inc. of anticompetitive behavior.

The suit was dismissed on March 18 after a Superior Court judge held there was no evidence to support allegations that Amazon’s contracts with merchants inflated prices for consumers. But the U.S. Justice Department said in a court filing Wednesday that the ruling improperly “blended” two areas of analysis that are crucial for establishing such claims.
