Federal Trade Commission Chairwoman Deborah Platt Majoras plans to take a plum spot in Procter & Gamble's legal department, according to antitrust sources. Until recently, the speculation was that she would return to Jones Day, where she had been a partner. Antitrust lawyers expect President Bush to make Commissioner Bill Kovacic the next chairman, though it's not clear whether he will also try to appoint another commissioner. At this late date in the administration, a nomination could easily run aground.
