Citation Edit

United States v. Western Elec. Co., 900 F.2d 283 (D.C. Cir. 1990) (full-text).

Appellate Court Proceedings Edit

The court of appeals concluded that the AT&T Consent Decree’s test for removing line-of-business restrictions applied only to contested modifications. For uncontested modifications — when all the parties to an agreement agree to the lifting of a restriction — the court found that a public interest test is appropriate. Because the removal of the information services restriction was uncontested, the court specified that the public interest standard be applied to remove this restriction.
