AT&T faces antitrust trial as settlement time nears

As a result, the government told a US district judge Monday it is prepared to resume the trial in its case seeking to break up the giant Bell System.

The government's position came as a surprise to AT&T, according to a spokesman, who said the company believed the final details could be worked out by the March 2 deadline set by the judge.
