Cleary - Antitrust in AT&T-Time Warner and Disney-Fox Merger

  • SLB Room 122

Ken Reinker and Morgan Mulvenon from Cleary Gottlieb will discuss movies, TV, and sports in the context of two recent media mergers, AT&T-Time Warner and Disney-Fox. Both cases involved the DOJ analyzing whether bargaining leverage would change between suppliers of content and distributors of content as a result of the merger. The DOJ challenged AT&T-Time Warner in court and lost (with the appeal pending in the DC Circuit), while in contrast, the Disney-Fox merger was approved by the DOJ in just six months.

Assemblymember Rob Bonta was elected to the California State Assembly's 18th District in 2012, where he represents the cities of Oakland, Alameda, and San Leandro. He was the first Filipino American legislator in California's then 165-year history.
