Michigan Attorney General Joins Lawsuit to Halt Sprint, T-Mobile Merger

Michigan’s attorney general is joining nine other attorneys general in filing a lawsuit to halt Sprint’s proposed merger with T-Mobile.

The complaint alleges that the merger would hurt consumers by decreasing competition and driving up prices for cell phone services.

Attorney General Dana Nessel says the move would enrich shareholders on the backs of their customers.

T-Mobile and Sprint say the merger would offer quicker speeds and increased capacity.

The companies are two of the top four mobile network operators in the country.
