Scott Pruitt, the attorney general for Oklahoma, has asked the Justice Department to drop its antitrust case against the merger between US Airways and American Airlines. "Not allowing the merger to proceed creates continuing uncertainty for the thousands of employees for American Airlines, one of the largest private-sector employers in the states," Pruitt wrote in a letter to Eric Holder, U.S. attorney general. "It is evident the merger would actually benefit consumers," Pruitt also wrote.
