and there are two things now working against the Justice Department that will cause a settlement.
One the Judge in charge of hearing the case won't let the Justice Department stall and already has a court date set up this month.
That Court date of Nov. 25th, is now forcing the Justice Department to rethink their position and hope some how they can avoid a very embarrassing loss in court due to their power grab. When you start to hear words like - settlement - coming together - judge wants talks, etc. You know there will be court action and US airways and American will be allowed to merge with some minor gate changes. LCC over $30 a share by the end of this month. (Easy)
