Now Sprint Nextel wants to put a halt to the merger between AT&T and T-Mobile. But why have they joined the crusade shortly after the Department of Justice became involved?
“If AT&T and T-Mobile were to combine to form the nation’s largest wireless network, Sprint said, the resulting wireless monolith would be strong enough to “exclude competitors, raise their costs, restrict their access to handsets, damage their businesses and ultimately to lessen competition.”
AT&T defended its name by responding to Sprint’s lawsuit by issuing a statement. Incidentally, Sprint’s stock has plummeted 20% since this year’s inception. Also, the company has been losing consumer interest which may be further threatened if the merger occurs.
“This simply demonstrates what we’ve said all along –- Sprint is more interested in protecting itself than it is in promoting competition that benefits consumers,” AT&T said in its statement. “We of course will vigorously contest this matter in court…”
“With today’s legal action, we are continuing that advocacy on behalf of consumers and competition,” Susan Z. Haller, Sprint’s vice president of litigation, said in a statement. Sprint “expect[s] to contribute our expertise and resources in proving that the proposed transaction is illegal.”
Does Sprint Nextel have the ability to stop the merger dead in its track? Perhaps the company would be more successful by uniting with other cellular companies to increase its customer base. Now that is a business savvy idea.
Kelly Williams-Bolar’s tearful plea to the eight members of the Ohio parole board in a July clemancy hearing was not enough to move the board members decision. They found the Akron mother to be deceitful and underserving of a pardon.
She was convicted in January for falsifying government documents. Her case has attracted national attention from sympathetic activitists who view her as a mother who was selectively prosecuted for trying to give her child a good education.
The report that was sent to the govenor of Ohio it was made clear that Williams-Bolar demonstrated deceitful behavior, both before and after her criminal indictment. It was also stated within the report that she lived at one address, but was using another one on her driver’s license.
This is incredibly shocking it has the nation kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place. Due to the simple fact people can relate to this mother by trying to give her children only the best and wanting them to not worry about anything. Which is what so matter mothers today are trying to do for their children especially in today’s time. Then you have the individuals who believe all the emotional and motherly instincts are wishful thinking and believe she is a criminal and the court should do whatever is needed to make sure she is behind bars. In the end I am pretty sure justice will be served.
