AT&T Inc. and the Justice Department have agreed to put off their upcoming antitrust trial over the phone company's proposed acquisition of smaller rival T-Mobile USA while the wireless carriers determine the fate of the deal.
AT&T Inc. and the Justice Department agreed Monday to put off their upcoming antitrust trial over the phone company's proposed acquisition of smaller rival T-Mobile USA while the wireless carriers determine the fate of the deal.
The Justice Department said Friday it wants to withdraw or postpone its antitrust case against the proposed merger between AT&T Inc. and smaller rival T-Mobile USA now that the two companies pulled their application with the Federal Communications Commission to approve the deal.
A federal judge ruled Wednesday evening that Sprint Nextel Corp. and a regional cellphone company can sue AT&T Inc. over its acquisition of rival T-Mobile USA.
U.S. District Court Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle agreed, ruling that the presentation wasn't actually a court record, and so it should remain off limits.
"Here, the presentation was part and parcel of plea negotiations and was not part of the adjudicatory process," she wrote in a six-page ruling on Tuesday.
