  1. DOJ: AT&T ruling contains 'fundamental' errors

    The court decision that cleared the way for AT&T to buy media company Time Warner rested on "fundamental analytical errors" - at least that's what the US Department of Justice is arguing as it appeals the judgment.

    Antitrust attorneys filed papers today for the appeal they promised last month.

    They say the deal will increase AT&T's bargaining power, contrary to Judge Richard Leon's earlier ruling.

    They also say it was illogical for Judge Leon to conclude the deal was intended to produce savings, but not maximise profit.
