FCC speaks on AT&T/Time Warner: The Tipline for 15 August 2018

The Federal Communications Commission did little to get in the way of the AT&T/Time Warner tie-up during the merger review process, but the agency has now filed an amicus curiae brief in defence of evidence used by the Department of Justice as the Antitrust Division seeks to block the deal on appeal. FCC chairman Ajit Pai said last year that the agency did not have the authority to review the deal because AT&T was not acquiring any licences from Time Warner. Although the agency said it is not taking an official stance on the litigation, its brief certainly aids the Antitrust Division’s argument.
