Closing Conditions

Judge Leon could have imposed so-called "behavioral remedies" or "structural remedies" on the deal. Behavioral remedies could have included requiring AT&T and Time Warner to agree to specific conditions before closing. Structural remedies would have involved forcing AT&T to sell off part of Time Warner's assets, such as Turner Broadcasting.

Ultimately, however, Judge Leon did not impose any conditions on the deal. He also said that he wouldn't be granting the DoJ a stay, which would force AT&T to wait to close the deal. He encouraged the government to have "good judgment" in any potential follow-up actions. The DoJ, for its part, said it will closely review the court’s opinion and consider next steps. In the meantime, AT&T is set to close the acquisition on or before its June 20 deadline.
