WASHINGTON - June 13, 2018 - PRLog -- Federal Judge Richard Leon ruled in favor of AT&T's acquisition of Time Warner, stating in his verdict that the Department of Justice "...failed to meet its burden to establish that the proposed transaction is likely to lessen competition substantially..." The judge made announced verdict on June 12, 2018, just nine days before the merger deadline, which would make the merger agreement dead and allow either party to walk away.

Financial Analyst, Tarra Jackson, shared with Al Jazeera News ( that "This is a huge win for AT&T, Time Warner and their stockholders. It is a smart business strategy to compete with the likes of Amazon, Google and Facebook. However, to imply that consumer will not pay more in the near or not so distant future is just not true." Tarra explained that similar to the Amazon Prime membership increase after Amazon's acquisition of Whole Foods, consumers may see increase in fees, new fees as well as more targeted ads after the AT&T / Time Warner merger.
