UPDATE The judge reviewing the complaint by nine state attorneys general plus the District of Columbia AG seeking to block the T-Mobile acquisition of Sprint plans to hold a pre-trial hearing this week.
Nine states and the District of Columbia filed a lawsuit Tuesday, aimed at stopping the transaction, which they say is anti-competitive, Inside Towers reported. They asked the judge for an expedited hearing, which he set for this Friday, June 21, according to Reuters.
The FCC agreed in principle to approve the deal while the Justice Department is believed to be near a final decision. T-Mobile and Sprint offered to sell Sprint’s Boost Mobile brand to reduce the combined entity’s market share in the prepaid business.
