Federal Judge Refuses to Stop Booz Allen’s Planned EverWatch Buy

A federal judge in Maryland on Tuesday refused to grant a preliminary injunction that the Department of Justice requested to halt Booz Allen Hamilton’s planned acquisition of EverWatch over competition-related issues, Reuters reported.

Judge Catherine Blake declined to grant the injunction and her full opinion with regard to the ruling is under seal, according to a docket at the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland.

In March, Booz Allen agreed to buy EverWatch to help accelerate the delivery of software development and analytics capabilities for national security clients and support digital and cyber transformation efforts of agencies within the intelligence community.

The proposed transaction encountered a problem after DOJ filed a civil antitrust lawsuit in late June, claiming the deal would impact competition for a simulation and modeling services contract with the National Security Agency and result in one company providing such services.

EverWatch provides software, artificial intelligence, machine learning and other technological platforms and services to national security agencies.
