Anheuser sues to halt InBev bid

From Times Wire Services

Anheuser-Busch Cos. is suing Belgian brewer InBev in federal court, seeking to bar its spurned suitor from soliciting support from Anheuser-Busch shareholders.

The lawsuit calls InBev’s unsolicited $46-billion offer to buy Anheuser-Busch illegal.

It says InBev concealed that it does business in Cuba, which could complicate its efforts to operate in the U.S.

InBev filed a motion asking Anheuser-Busch shareholders to fire the company’s board of directors and replace them with a slate selected by InBev.
