Breaking News # 1: DOJ Files Statement of Interest, Again, in FTC v. Qualcomm

I just saw this on Twitter, reported by Bloomberg's Victoria Graham.  The Antitrust Division wants the Ninth Circuit to stay the injunction.  (As Yogi Berra would say, it's déjà vu all over again.)  The Division also is representing that the Department of Defense "firmly believes that any measure that inappropriately limits Qualcomm's technological leadership, ability to invest in research and development (R&D), and market competitiveness, even in the short-term, could harm national security."  I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the idea that national security requires that we throw antitrust law under the bus, but we'll see.
