Sprint Lawsuit vs AT&T + T-Mobile to Proceed

A U.S. District court judge has ruled that Sprint's lawsuit seeking to block the AT&T + T-Mobile deal does have grounds to proceed. AT&T had sought to have the case thrown out.

  • In September, Sprint filed its own lawsuit in federal court in the District of Columbia seeking to block AT&T's proposed acquisition of T-Mobile USA. Sprint cited Section 7 of the Clayton Act, arguing that the deal would hurt consumers, as well as Sprint and other independent operators.
