Judge Clears Way for Airline Merger Completion

U.S. District Court Judge Sean Lane has ruled that this month's settlement of an antitrust lawsuit filed by the Department of Justice did not upset American Airlines’ bankruptcy reorganization plan, which is built around the merger of American Airlines and US Airways into the world’s largest airline. The judge rejected a request by a group of consumers to temporarily block the deal. WRCB Channel 3 has the story.
