U.S. AG Eric Holder pours cold water on talk of a settlement in the Justice Department's antitrust challenge to AT&T's (T) $39B takeover of T-Mobile (DTEGY.PK), saying his lawyers are "ready and eager" to fight the case in court. DOJ has been emboldened by its victory last week in blocking a deal by H&R Block (HRB), the first time in eight years it fought a merger in court and won.
