How Reuters Reported The Atampt-time Warner Ruling First


– For U.S. media companies and investors, it was the ruling of the decade.

A federal judge in Washington had sole power to decide whether telecoms company AT&T Inc could buy Time Warner Inc, the parent of HBO, CNN and Warner Bros, for $85 billion and reshape the U.S. media landscape.

After a six-week long trial, Judge Richard Leon set a hearing date of June 12 at 4 p.m. (2000 GMT) to announce his ruling. People were so keen to get a seat in his courtroom that they took turns standing in line more than 24 hours ahead of the event.
