Justice Department appeals ruling in attempt to block massive AT&T–Time Warner merger
Thursday, 12 July 2018 The Justice Department will appeal a judge’s decision that allowed the merger between AT&T and Time Warner.
In court records released today, the agency said it plans to appeal the lower court’s ruling to the DC Circuit court of Appeals.
