AT&T Defeat, High-Profile Cases Put Pressure on Justice Department

Tuesday’s AT&T T -4.77% ruling was a major blow for the Justice Department, putting its antitrust enforcers in the position of having to regroup quickly, as a heavy workload awaits them.

Cleveland State University law professor Christopher Sagers said he doesn’t expect the Justice Department to sit on its hands after losing on AT&T. But he said the ruling could temper its appetite for bold cases challenging future vertical mergers and lead it to focus instead on big, more traditional cases.
