AT&T-Time Warner merger approved, setting the stage for more consolidation across corporate America

by Brian Fung June 12 at 4:41 PM

Breaking news: A federal judge has approved AT&T's $85 billion Time Warner merger, handing the telecom giant a massive victory that could clip the ambitions of regulators seeking to block mergers.

The case — one of the most closely watched antitrust trials in decades — is viewed as a bellwether for other deals waiting in the wings. From Comcast’s bid for 21st Century Fox to CVS’s acquisition of Aetna, massive corporations increasingly have sought to expand their reach by buying up companies in different lines of business. The judge’s decision, which is allowing AT&T to buy Time Warner without conditions, shows the federal government may struggle to rein in such mergers.

Trump, who played both sides of the “dispute” will now cash in.
