The Future Legacy of the AT&T/ T-Mobile Merger Case

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Jonathan Rubin (Rubin PLLC) describes The Future Legacy of the AT&T/ T-Mobile Merger Case.

ABSTRACT: The government's challenge to the proposed acquisition of T-Mobile's U.S. wireless communications business by AT&T Mobility could leave a lasting imprint on the annals of antitrust. The epic cases between the government and "Ma Bell" in the 1980s and Microsoft in the 1990s not only moved antitrust policy onto the front pages but also stretched the limits of antitrust analysis. Both cases left their mark on antitrust law, if not on the commercial life of the nation. Might the DOJ's challenge to the AT&T/T-Mobile merger be a similarly significant antitrust case?
