AT&T has won a court ruling allowing it to complete its purchase of Time Warner Inc.

The ruling (PDF) by US District Judge Richard Leon went entirely in AT&T's favor. The Department of Justice had sued AT&T to block the merger, but the judge's ruling, pending a possible appeal, would let AT&T complete the purchase without spinning off any subsidiaries.
