The Federal Trade Commission has issued an order lifting the stay in the administrative proceeding against Intuit Inc.
The case originally commenced in March, 2022. Based on a motion filed by Intuit, the matter was automatically withdrawn from adjudication pursuant to the Commission Rules of Practice on May 6, 2022, and was stayed to allow the Commission to consider whether further litigation was in the public interest. The order returns the matter to adjudication before an Administrative Law Judge and lifts the stay on the administrative proceeding against the company.
In its order returning the matter to adjudication, the Commission set an evidentiary hearing before the Administrative Law Judge on March 27, 2023.
The Commission vote to issue the order returning the matter to adjudication was 4-1, with Commissioner Noah Joshua Phillips voting in the negative.
