Default Delta/NWA merger on schedule?

I've been looking around to see if the merger is making any progress and found this:

"Delta Chief Executive Richard Anderson, who would be CEO after the combination, would not discuss the lawsuit, but he indicated that the carrier maintains its goal of completing the deal by the end of the year.

"We are still focused on that timeline and believe we can accomplish the timeline as stated," Anderson told reporters after the Delta shareholder vote."

Has anyone heard about this lawsuit and what it means in terms of delaying the merger? I'm just trying to educate myself about what is going on so if anyone else has info or some good links to merger news lemme know. Thanks

Basically it's a frivolous lawsuit by some 28 passengers being heard in a San Francisco Court. Court date scheduled around thanksgiving I believe, and I seriously doubt anything will come of it.

Latest I've heard the plaintiff wanted to depose upper/level management/CEO's from Northwest, Delta, Continental, American, United, and American Airlines.
Guess that what happens when people have big wallets and small brains.
I seriously doubt anything will come of it, my only hope is that Delta can counter-sue these A-holes for the court fees.

Nawwwwwww I'm sure it's still on track. There was a lawsuit in MN over the NWO/Republic merger that drifted through the courts into the 90s (or later).

Yes, it is, and we will be one dysfunctional family in a few months.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think it is even ahead of past predictions.

The JPWA is done, when many were discussing ten year negotiations, SLI is in the doors, many thought the government might approve it by the Jan 1st 09, but it sounds like it could be sooner then that. (?)
I know RA wants it yesterday.
