Sprint, C Spire granted motion to stay AT&T lawsuits

Sprint and C-Spire have been granted their motions to stay their court cases against the merger between AT&T and T-Mobile. On Tuesday, U.S. District court judge Ellen Huvelle granted the Sprint and T-Mobile requests, which are identical to the stay requests sent in by AT&T and the Department of Justice.

In a statement, Sprint’s senior vice president of governmental affairs, Vonya McCann, said that Sprint will consider its options if AT&T and T-Mobile restart their bid for a merger.

“Should AT&T, Deutsche Telekom and T-Mobile decide to reinitiate this court proceeding in January, they have agreed with both the governmental and private plaintiffs to a January 18 conference with the Court to determine next steps on all of the cases,” she said.

On Monday, AT&T agreed to postpone its antitrust lawsuit, essentially giving up on its original proposal to merge with T-Mobile.

“We are actively considering whether and how to revise our current transaction to achieve the necessary regulatory approvals,” AT&T said in a statement Monday.
