IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
Pursuant to Section 2(b) of the Antitrust Procedures and Penalties Act ("APPA"), 15 U.S.C. I15(b)-(h), plaintiff, the United States of America, moves for entry of the proposed Amended Final Judgment (attached hereto) in this civil antitrust proceeding. The Amended Final Judgment may be entered at this time without further hearing if the Court determines that entry is in the public interest. The Competitive Impact Statement filed by plaintiff in this matter on June 8. 1999 explains why entry of the proposed Final Judgment would be in the public interest. A Certificate of Compliance with Provisions of the Antitrust Procedures and Penalties Act, setting forth the steps taken by the parties to comply with all applicable provisions of the APPA and certifying that the statutory waiting period has expired has been filed simultaneously with this Motion.
As required by law, the public, including affected competitors and customers, has had opportunity to comment on the proposed Amended Final Judgment. No comments were received. Therefore, there have been no claims that the proposed Amended Final Judgment is outside the zone of settlements consistent with the public interest.
The Court should find that the proposed Amended Final Judgment is in the public interest and should enter the proposed Amended Final Judgment without further hearings. Defendants have informed plaintiff that they consent to the entry of the Amended Final Judgment in this matter.
