US court to rule on AT&T takeover of Time Warner 12 June

Tuesday 1 May 2018 | 14:23 CET | News
The US court ruling on whether to allow AT&T's takeover of Time Warner to go ahead is set to be issued on 12 June. That follows six weeks of hearings in which the US Department of Justice outlined its case against the merger. In a twist during closing arguments, the Justice Department urged the judge in the case to consider "alternative" remedies if he decides not to block the planned acquisition of Time Warner, the Wall Street Journal reports.
