AT&T seeks prompt trial for DOJ’s T-Mobile suit

Company wants to proceed to trial so deal can close

Yesterday wireless carrier AT&T declined settlement talks with the Justice Department (DOJ) and told a district judge it wants to proceed to trial for the agency’s antitrust lawsuit challenging the company’s proposed $39 billion acquisition of T-Mobile.

“We’re seeking a prompt trial because we’re very interested in closing this transaction,” said AT&T attorney Mark Hansen yesterday at a court hearing in which AT&T and the DOJ were supposed to discuss settlement options.
