According to Bloomberg, DOJ Antitrust has hired Glenn Pomerantz, a partner at Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP, to block the merger.
I think that hiring an outside lawyer to litigate the case is a signal that DOJ expects to litigate this case out and not settle. As I am teaching an antitrust mergers class this spring, AT&T/T-Mobile should be a highlight of my course.
