A lawsuit filed by an Atlanta-based medical testing lab against the Federal Trade Commission has been put on hold following word that a congressional committee is investigating a company involved in the case.


Michael Daugherty, LabMD’s CEO, welcomed news that Congress is looking into the FTC’s involvement with Tiversa.


“The benefit of the doubt the federal government enjoys needs to be scrutinized when to comes to the behavior of the FTC,” Daugherty said Tuesday during a conference call with reporters.


Reed Rubenstein, senior vice president of litigation for Cause of Action, the government accountability group representing LabMD, said the court case has been postponed until June 12.
