AT&T Wins Minor Court Victory Against Sprint
AT&T, Sprint, and the Department of Justice met in court on Monday to discuss logistics of the lawsuits being pursued against AT&T concerning its proposed acquisition of T-Mobile USA. Sprint was dealt a blow in the courtroom because the judge decided to deny its request for access to masses of AT&T documents. "I don't see it as efficient or fair," said U.S. District Judge Ellen Huvelle. Sprint hoped to use the materials in its lawsuit against AT&T. The judge stopped short of dismissing Sprint's lawsuit, however, which is what AT&T is hoping to convince the court to do. Huvelle said to Sprint at one point, "You don't stand in the shoes of the consumer or the Department of Justice," implying that Sprint's lawsuit against AT&T may not have the impact on the Justice Department's decision that Sprint would like. For its part, Sprint is confident that the judge will allow its lawsuit to stand. "We believe Sprint passed that test and we await the court's ruling."
