Justice Department Appeals Court Ruling Allowing AT&T-Time Warner Merger

The government initiated the appeal Thursday with a two-page notice in federal court, a month after U.S. District Judge Richard Leonrejected Justice Department arguments that the more than $80 billion cash-and-stock deal would suppress competition in the pay-TV industry.
