Bankruptcy judge to issue ruling on AMR-US DOJ deal

|By:, SA News Editor

AMR (AAMRQ) and US Airways (LCC) are due to find out today whether Bankruptcy Judge Sean Lane approves of their settlement with the Justice Department over their proposed merger.

The DOJ had opposed the transaction until the airlines agreed to make concessions.

The deal also needs the authorization of a federal district judge, who is accepting public comments until February 7.
