Updated: AT&T to ask judge to cut Sprint out of T-Mobile hearing

Telecom giant argues Sprint’s effort to block merger is unwarranted

AT&T Inc. will ask a federal judge in Washington today to eliminate Sprint Nextel Corp.’s lawsuit that aims to block its takeover of T-Mobile USA Inc.

Sprint, along with Cellular South Inc., claim that AT&T’s proposed merger with T-Mobile will cause an unfair advantage in the mobile market. AT&T responded to the suit saying that an antitrust case is meritless when brought by competing companies rather than consumers.
