Laura Atlee authored an article titled “A Bananas Judgment: Denying a Parent Company Access to a Related Company’s Reply to the Statement of Objections” published in the May 2013 issue of Competition Policy International’s Antitrust Chronicle.  The article addresses a recent judgment of European Union’s General Court that confirms that the European Commission can rely on the notion of “undertaking,” but does not need to extend the same procedural rights as would be given to a “legal entity.”
