4 monthes ago   |   By PhoneDog

One month after AT&T's mega acquisition of Time Warner was completed , the U.S. Justice Department is appealing the deal's approval.
A court filing today revealed that the Justice Department will appeal the AT&T-Time Warner merger despite the fact that it was recently completed. The DoJ actually tried to block the merger before it was completed, too, arguing that it would make pay TV "less competitive and less innovative." However, a federal judge ruled that the government didn't show that the deal would significantly decrease competition and so he let it continue without conditions.

DOJ files to appeal court approval of AT&T's $85.4 billion purchase of Time Warner

Back in the middle of last month, U.S. District Judge Richard Leon ruled in favor of AT&T's purchase of Time Warner, and against the DOJ.

In addition, the judge did not force AT&T to make any divestitures to help glide the deal through court approval.
However, a court document filed today indicates that the Justice Department will appeal the decision. This decision to appeal could have been ...

4 monthes ago   |   By TechCrunch

The U.S. Department of Justice has filed to appeal a federal judge's decision to approve AT&T's acquisition of Time Warner .

4 monthes ago   |   By Android Headlines

The Justice Department has decided to appeal the ruling in their case against AT&T and Time Warner to block the merger. The DOJ filed a document with the court on Thursday.

The Justice Department is appealing a judge's ruling approving the merger of AT&T and Time Warner, according to court documents filed Thursday. The Justice Department sued to block the deal from going through in November of 2017, arguing that it would limit competition and raise prices. Judge Richard Leon ruled in AT&T's favor in June, saying in a blistering verdict that the Department of Justice did not sufficiently meet its burden of proving that the deal would allow AT&T to harm rival TV providers. He declined to attach any conditions to the deal, a further blow to the DoJ. The judge...

The US Justice Department is set to appeal the $85 billion merger between AT&T and Time Warner, Bloomberg says, citing a court filing.
The deal, which has been nearly two years in the making, was approved by federal judge Richard Leon just one month ago. It closed just days later , but the Justice Department was given 60 days to appeal the ruling.
The deal's approval was closely watched by an industry in the midst of consolidation, and led to Comcast making a $65 billion bid for 21st Century Fox's assets. That bid was later topped by Disney, who offered $71.3 billion.
