(Reuters) – An attorney for the state attorneys general who filed a lawsuit in hopes of stopping T-Mobile U.S. Inc’s (TMUS.O) $26 billion merger with Sprint Corp (S.N) has requested a new trial date for the case.
In a letter to Magistrate Judge Robert Lehrburger dated July 31, attorney Glenn Pomerantz said the states are requesting a new trial-ready date of Dec. 9, adding that the Oct. 7 trial date proposed earlier is “unworkable”.
