Judge in AT&T case vs. DOJ schedules September 21st settlement talks
U.S. District Court Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle, presiding over the AT&T vs. Department of Justice case relating to the carrier's proposed purchase of T-Mobile, has asked all of the parties involved, which includes T-Mobile's German parent Deutsche Telekom, to present to her a plan for managing the case and a schedule for the lawsuit by September 16th.

On September 21st, the judge has scheduled a settlement talk for the three parties involved. Government officials have said late last month that there is room for negotiation and as we reported, AT&T has recently come forward with some ideas, including spinning off a quarter of T-Mobile's assets, in hopes that it can persuade the DOJ and the FCC to vote in favor of the deal.
