The lawsuit filed late Monday calls InBev's unsolicited $46 billion offer to buy Anheuser-Busch an illegal scheme.

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

InBev filed a motion on Monday asking Anheuser-Busch shareholders to fire the company's board of directors and replace those members with a slate selected by InBev.

Anheuser-Busch's lawsuit asks a federal judge to block InBev from making any more solicitations from its shareholders.
