The Department of Justice may have signed off on T-Mobile's $26 billion merger with Sprint, but state attorneys general are still trying to block the deal. Oregon on Monday joined 15 states and the District of Columbia in a lawsuit that seeks to halt the bid, calling it an "anticompetitive megamerger."
"Oregon's addition to our lawsuit keeps our momentum going, and ensures that there isn't a single region of this country that doesn't oppose this anticompetitive megamerger," New York Attorney General Letitia James said in a statement Monday.
Sprint declined to comment. T-Mobile didn't respond to request for comment.
