T-Mobile's $26 billion acquisition of Sprint is basically a done deal, as a federal judge today ruled that the merger can go forward. T-Mobile said in response that "the companies are now taking final steps to complete their merger," and that they will try to finalize the deal by April 1.

Attorneys general from thirteen states and the District of Columbia sued to block the merger, saying it would reduce competition in the wireless telecommunications market and harm consumers with higher prices. Their arguments were rejected in a ruling issued by District Judge Victor Marrero of US District Court for the Southern District of New York.


The states are considering an appeal, but once the merger is in place, it is extremely doubtful it will be reversed. Short of a hail-mary miracle, the T-mobile+Sprint merger is a done deal.
