Sprint and C Spire postpone AT&T merger lawsuits

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 7:38PM EST

Sprint and C Spire Wireless have decided to postpone lawsuits levied against AT&T. The two carriers had originally filed the suits in hopes of blocking AT&T’s planned  $39 billion acquisition of T-Mobile USA from Deutsche Telekom. AT&T recently pulled its merger application from the FCC however, and was granted a stay until January 18th for its lawsuit against the Department of Justice. Sprint originally sued to block the merger in September when it argued the deal would “harm retail consumers and corporate customers by causing higher prices and less innovation.”
