U.S. federal judge allows merger between T-Mobile and Sprint

WASHINGTON, Feb 11 (Reuters) - T-Mobile US Inc and Sprint Corp won a federal court fight as a judge ruled on Tuesday that their $26 billion merger was legal and should be allowed.

In his ruling, Judge Victor Marrero disagreed with a group of state attorneys general who had argued that a merger of the No. 3 and No. 4 U.S. wireless companies should be prohibited because it would lead to higher prices for consumers. (Reporting by Diane Bartz; Editing by Edmund Blair)
