The Department of Justice may have signed T-Mobile's $ 26 billion merger with Sprint but the Attorney General's Office is still trying to block the deal. Oregon on Monday joined 15 states and the District of Columbia in a lawsuit seeking to halt the bid, calling it a "competitive megamerger."

The lawsuit was filed in June by several Attorney General, led by New York and California . They argue that the merger will hurt competition and will cost its citizens $ 4.5 billion annually.

"Oregon's addition to our lawsuit is accelerating, ensuring that there is not a single region in this country that does not oppose this competitive megamerger," New York attorney Letitia James said in a statement Monday.

Sprint declined to comment. T-Mobile did not respond to a request for comment.

The Department of Justice approved T-Mobile's bid to buy Sprint which was first announced more than a year ago, last month. The agreement was also approved by the Federal Communications Commission in May. Although these were major obstacles to removal, T-Mobile previously said it would not proceed with the termination of the deal until it resolved the concerns of the state AGs.
