Judge rules Sprint, C Spire can sue AT&T
Judge allows Sprint and regional carrier C Spire to sue over AT&T acquisition of T-Mobile
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' A federal judge is allowing Sprint Nextel Corp. and a regional cellphone company to sue AT&T Inc. over its acquisition of rival T-Mobile USA.

AT&T had asked U.S. District Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle to toss out the suit because Sprint and Mississippi-based C Spire Wireless did not have the right to sue over the deal that would create the nation's largest wireless phone carrier. AT&T already is fighting an antitrust lawsuit brought by the Obama administration that claims the AT&T-T-Mobile merger would lead to higher wireless prices, less innovation and fewer choices for consumers.

AT&T says the deal will allow it to better serve customers and expand its wireless network.

In an order Wednesday evening, Huvelle ruled the case could proceed.
