The lawsuit is claiming that the merger violates Section 7 of the Clayton Act. Sprint’s lawsuit was filed as a related case to the suit already filed by the Department of Justice. Here is what Sprint had to say:
“Sprint opposes AT&T’s proposed takeover of T-Mobile,” said Susan Z. Haller, vice president-Litigation, Sprint. “With today’s legal action, we are continuing that advocacy on behalf of consumers and competition, and expect to contribute our expertise and resources in proving that the proposed transaction is illegal.”
