U.S. DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE
ANTITRUST DIVISION
Take notice that a proposed Final Judgement has been filed with the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, Washington, D.C., in a civil antitrust case, United States v. Northrop Grumman Corp. and TRW, Civ. No. 1:02CV2432 (GK).
On December 11, 2002, the United States filed a Complaint alleging that Northrop's acquisition of TRW would lessen competition substantially in development, production, and sale of radar reconnaisance satellite systems and electro-optical/ infrared reconnaissance satellite systems, and the payloads for those systems, in the United States, in violation of Section 7 of the Clayton Act, 15 U.S.C. sec 18. The proposed Final Judgment, filed the same time as the Complaint, requires the defendant Northrop to act in a non-discriminatory manner in making teaming and purchase decisions on programs in which by virtue of the acquisition of TRW, it will be able to compete as both a prime contractor and the supplier of the payloads for the program. The proposed Final Judgement also establishes a set of procedures to monitor and enforce Northrop's compliance with its obligations. A Competitive Impact Statement filed by the United States describes the Complaint, the proposed Final Judgment, and the remedies available to private litigants. Copies of the Complaint, the proposed Final Judgment, and Competitive Impact Statement are available for inspection at the U.S. Department of Justice, Antitrust Division, Suite 215 North, 325 7th Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20004 (telephone: 202/514-2692), and at the Clerk's Office of the U.S. Court for the District of Columbia, 333 Constitution Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20001. Copies of these materials may be obtained upon request and payment of a copying fee.
Interested persons may address comments to J. Robert Kramer II, Chief, Litigation II Section, Antitrust Division, U.S. Department of Justice, 1401 H Street, N.W., Suite 3000, Washington, D.C. 20530 (telephone: 202/307-0924), within 60 days of the date of this notice.
