AT&T CFO shows he’s unafraid of DOJ appeal

AT&T’s top financial executive doesn’t seem worried about the court appeal of its Time Warner acquisition – even if there were some unwanted headlines of late. “Quite frankly, we’re very confident that the decision … (will) be upheld,” Chief Financial Officer John Stephens said at a Morgan Stanley conference this week. Oral arguments in the appeal are set to commence in December.  Stephens made his comments after AT&T took some heat on the matter in recent weeks.
