Morrison & Foerster antitrust partner Lisa Phelan speaks to Law360 about the U.S. Department of Justice’s reported antitrust investigation of the automakers that have made a recent car emissions deal with California.

Lisa says the DOJ could be implying that the automakers are effectively agreeing not to sell certain, higher-polluting cars and that reduces consumer choice. "But the impact of that on the total number of cars still available is unlikely to be found to be significant to any relevant market," she said.
