Attorneys general join DOJ probe into US Airways-American Airlines merger

Justice Department probe indicated potential antitrust problems

Texas is leading an effort among 19 attorneys general to join the Department of Justice (DOJ) in its investigation into American Airlines Inc. merger with US Airways Group Inc.
