AT&T Time Warner merger without conditionsA US Federal judge has ruled that AT&T’s US$85 billion acquisition of Time Warner is legal, without placing any conditions on the merger of the telecom and media giants. U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon further said, he would deny a stay on the deal if requested by the Justice Dept., meaning that even if DOJ appeals, the companies are free to close. That did not impose conditions on the merger’s approval and secondly, he also urged the government not to seek a stay when issuing his decision in a closed-door room with reporters.
