CNNMoney quotes Jeffrey Blumenfeld in an article discussing the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia’s decision permitting AT&T’s $85 billion acquisition of Time Warner and the parties’ possible next steps. Blumenfeld notes that if the U.S. government does not get an injunction to prevent the deal closing during what is likely to be a lengthy appeals process, the companies will merge their operations, making it that much more difficult to undo.
