Brazil's Embraer says injunction holding up Boeing deal has been lifted

RIO DE JANEIRO, Feb 26 (Reuters) - A federal court in Brazil has lifted an injunction that had prohibited Embraer SA from holding a shareholders' meeting to approve a tie-up with Boeing Co, the Brazilian planemaker said.

There is now no obstacle to holding the shareholders meeting, which is scheduled for Tuesday, the company said in securities filing. (Reporting by Gram Slattery; editing by Jason Neely)
