WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Colorado has decided to drop out of an effort by state attorneys general to T-Mobile US’s (TMUS.O) merger with Sprint (S.N) in exchange for 2,000 jobs, the Colorado attorney general’s office said in a statement.
The lawsuit led by New York against the firms and their parent companies Softbank Group Corp (9984.T) and Deutsche Telekom AG (DTEGn.DE), argues the deal will hike consumer prices. A trial date has been set for Dec. 9.
