Geoff made all the right arguments on the FTC’s embarrassing effort to thwart the Whole Foods/Wild Oats merger. Indeed, he was one of the first to do so and thereby earned an honored link on Whole Foods’ website.

Judge Paul Friedman of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia just denied the FTC’s request for a preliminary injunction. Unfortunately, the judge’s 93-page opinion was issued under seal. My guess is that the opinion credits most of Geoff’s arguments (see also here, here, and here), and hopefully a few of mine.
