The Supreme Court denied Stolt-Nielsen's cert petition challenge the Department of Justice's Antitrust Divisions' decision to prosecution the corporation which had previously been granted immunity exchange for its cooperation in an antitrust investigation. Stolt-Nielsen had initially received leniency in exchange for providing information in the alleged customer allocation and bid-rigging in the liquid-cargo shipping market. The Antitrust Division later decided to lift the immunity when it decided Stolt-Nielsen had not lived up to the immunity agreement. After the Court's decision, Stolt-Nielsen announced that it will file a motion to dismiss the indictment based upon the amnesty agreement, on Nov. 22, in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia.
