Google Withdraws Challenge to AT&T-T-Mobile Deal

Google Inc. withdrew its bid to intervene in the government’s lawsuit challenging AT&T Inc.’s proposed purchase of T-Mobile USA Inc., citing a new order on how confidential data will be handled in the case to protect business secrets. Google, in a filing in federal court in Washington, referred to an order signed by U.S. District Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle that said a so-called non-party must be given notice when confidential material is submitted in the case.
