Court Denies Injunction To Retirement Group In Acti-Blizz Merger

The Wayne County group had claimed that it was getting short-ended in the deal, not gaining all the benefits from the combination that it could. The court will not allow the Wayne County group's lawsuit to impede the merger, which is highly likely to be approved across the board. Activision's full announcement follows the jump.
