U.S. Justice Department Plans to Sue AT&T
By Sarah Maugaotega 11/22/17
The U.S. Justice Department plans to sue AT&T to block the company’s purchase of Time Warner Cable. Earlier this month, the Justice Department demanded that AT&T divest its ownership of DirecTV, in order to win antitrust approval, which is needed for the purchase to be made. Smaller companies also oppose the deal, claiming it will give AT&T too much power over content distributed to wireless subscribers.
