CNBC: Judge mulls not approving CVS-Aetna agreement

While the $69 billion merger between CVS Health and Aetna has been approved by regulators and cleared by the Department of Justice, a federal judge has raised the prospect of not approving the deal, CNBC reported.

A judge from the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia noted the deal, which closed Nov. 28, was given a “rubber stamp” treatment by governments, according to CNBC.

According to Aetna, the situation is “commonplace,” CNBC reported.
