A US federal judge has agreed to delay proceedings in the anti-trust lawsuit against Anheuser-Busch InBev's US$20.1bn bid for Grupo Modelo

District Judge Richard Roberts agreed late last week to suspend the case until 19 March, a court filing showed, after A-B InBev, Modelo and Constellation Brands said they were in talks with the Department of Justice (DoJ) over the deal. Earlier this month A-B InBev announced a series of concessions in an attempt to satisfy the DoJ's concerns. 

According to reports yesterday, based on unidentified sources, the talks between the companies and the regulator are progressing well and look to be heading towards an agreement.   

The DoJ submitted its lawsuit last month based on the concern that the deal would harm competition in the US beer market and lead to higher prices.
