By KWMU staff
St. Louis – A San Francisco antitrust lawyer is suing to stop InBev's impending $52 billion dollar takeover of Anheuser-Busch.
Attorney Joe Alioto says the deal will hurt beer drinkers by decreasing competition and increasing prices.
Neither company has commented on the litigation, but InBev has said it does not expect to run afoul of antitrust law.
