They did it without the US DOJ approval?

What's going on here? The Google-Motorola merger had to be approved by a bunch of foreign countries but I haven't read any such interference about this buyout.
They didn't buy all of Ericsson, they only bought out Ericsson's stake in their own joint venture.
