Is AT&T/T-Mobile Dead?

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Could it be that AT&T and T-Mobile are ready to end the merger even before the antitrust trial set for February? According to news reports, the parties have scrapped their FCC application to join their cellular operations. I wonder to what extent this is the function of the FCC's recent opposition to the deal versus the development of antitrust case law since the suit by DOJ was filed. The way I read US v. H&R Block, the tide seems to be turning toward the goverrnment, when you compare the language used to the case law in Oracle for example.
