American Airlines and US Airways are requesting the names of people interviewed by the Justice Department for the antitrust case before it filed suit to block the proposed merger. "Plaintiffs investigated the challenged merger for many months before filing suit, interviewing third parties and gathering information they believe justifies their attempt to block the merger," the carriers said in a motion filed on Tuesday. The U.S. Department of Justice has refused to turn over the names of those sources, according to the carriers. The Justice Department declined to comment on the motion.
