Terrell McSweeny: New Commissioner on the FTC Block
On April 28, Terrell McSweeny was sworn in as a Federal Trade Commission commissioner following a 95-1 Senate vote on her confirmation. After 14 months of being one commissioner short (since Chairman Jon Leibowitz left in February 2013), the FTC is now back to full strength on its bench. There is much speculation and interest as to who is McSweeny and what does her appointment mean to the FTC and the business community?
