Judge rules AT&T can’t see Trump White House communications about the Time Warner merger

In an important early decision in the case, the judge presiding over the Justice Department’s attempt to block the AT&T–Time Warner merger has ruled that the White House’s private communications on the merger will not be released.

When the department said in November that it would sue to block the mega-merger, thoughts immediately turned to the White House.
