Responding to an Anti-Trust Civil Investigative Demand (CID)

The mere receipt of a Civil Investigative Demand (CID) from federal law enforcement agencies is a clear indication that you are suspected of having crucial information pertaining to a potential violation of federal antitrust laws. The way you respond to the CID can greatly impact your potential liability in the near future. It is imperative that you fully grasp the gravity and significance of a CID in order to minimize any potential consequences.

A CID is essentially an administrative subpoena, a formal demand for specific information, documents, or testimony. It is important to note that noncompliance with a CID is met with legal action. These demands are issued by either the Antitrust Division of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) or the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) whenever they suspect that a company holds any information that is relevant to a civil antitrust investigation. The demand letter specifies the information required, which can include:

  • Documents for inspection, reproduction, or copying
  • Answers to written questions
  • Oral testimony

It is also important to note that CIDs are administrative subpoenas, which means they do not require approval from a federal district court and can be issued without a showing of probable cause. This makes it all the more imperative for those on the receiving end to understand the implications and take the necessary steps to protect themselves and their company.

When facing a Civil Investigative Demand (CID) from federal antitrust law enforcement agencies, it is crucial to avoid making costly mistakes that can lead to legal liability and increased scrutiny. Unfortunately, companies often fall into the trap of either ignoring the CID altogether or over-complying by providing more information than required.

Ignoring a CID is a grave mistake as your company can face criminal charges for contempt of noncompliance. This not only puts your company in a difficult legal situation but also makes satisfying the demands of the CID even more challenging. On the other hand, over-complying may seem like the easy way out, but it can lead to unnecessary legal liability by exposing your company to information that did not have to be disclosed.

To protect your company from these mistakes, it is essential to take immediate action by implementing a “legal hold.” This ensures the preservation of all potentially disclosable documents and information. Additionally, it is crucial to determine if your company is the target of an antitrust investigation or enforcement action. This will help you decide how best to respond to the CID.

In some cases, it may be wise to try to limit or quash the CID by filing a motion to do so. This can be a tricky process, but it is important to act quickly, as the time frame to file such a motion is often very short. For example, if the CID was filed by the FTC, you only have 20 days to file the motion.

It’s important to remember that the key to successfully navigating a CID is to understand the gravity of the situation and take the necessary steps to protect your company from potential legal liabilities. Consultation with an experienced antitrust defense attorney can help you make the right decisions to protect your company’s interests.

When facing a Civil Investigative Demand (CID), it is essential to take proactive measures to protect your company from potential legal liabilities. One of the most crucial steps to take is to collect all relevant documents and information that fall within the scope of the demand. Even if you decide to challenge the CID, it is vital to remember that the deadlines for compliance still stand and if your challenge is unsuccessful, you will still be legally obliged to comply with the CID. Therefore, it is crucial to begin collecting the information as soon as possible, to ensure that you have enough time to review the disclosure package and identify any incriminating or potentially incriminating information.

Additionally, it is crucial to make complying with the CID a top priority. Waiting until the deadline is not an option, as you want to have enough time to review the information and identify any potential legal liabilities. If you find something that could potentially incriminate your company, it is essential to find a justifiable ground for non-disclosure. This could involve invoking a privilege like attorney-client privilege or making a strong argument for why the information is outside the scope of the demand. This can help insulate your company from legal liability.

It’s important to remember that a CID is not something to be taken lightly. It requires immediate action and a thorough understanding of the legal implications to protect your company’s interests. Consulting with an experienced antitrust defense attorney can help you make the right decisions to navigate this complex process.
