Question: Why Was FTD In A Lawsuit?
Answer: FTD has nearly obtained a monopoly position in its market. Therefore, it has been sued several times by the United States Department of Justice to ensure it does not engage in non-competitive behavior--primarily, prohibiting their network members from joining with competing flower-by-wire services. After suits in 1956, 1969, and 1990, Florists' Transworld Delivery entered into consent decrees with the Department of Justice.
