What a judge can — and can't — do in ruling on the Justice Department's deal with CVS and Aetna

By | December 4, 2018

A federal judge is considering halting the integration of CVS Health and Aetna — even though the two companies closed their merger last week.

CVS and Aetna closed their roughly $ 70 billion deal on Nov. 28.

“CVS Health and Aetna are one company, and our focus is on transforming the consumer health experience,” CVS said in a statement.

Correction: This story has been updated to clarify the judge’s statement as to what order he will issue.
