Answer ... Parties can appeal decisions made by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) or by a district court in a Department of Justice or FTC enforcement action. All aspects of the decision can be appealed, including divestiture orders and other remedial actions. The standard for the reviewing court is ‘clearly erroneous’, as agencies’ decisions and/or determinations are considered with a high degree of deference. However, a reviewing court is not limited to errors of law and may conduct a full review of all facts and all evidence known to the agencies at the time of the decision.
Answer ... Third parties do not have standing to appeal a decision by the agencies and therefore cannot appeal the agencies’ decision. The only recourse that a third party has in this situation is to bring its own case against the transaction.
