The US Department of Justice has prevailed — at least this time — in its antitrust suit against two large publishers.

The Associated Press reports that a federal judge blocked Penguin Random House’s proposed purchase of Simon & Schuster on Monday.

Most of her ruling is currently under seal because of confidential information, she asked both sides to meet with her on Friday to propose redactions.

PRH said in a statement Monday that it would seek an expedited appeal of the ruling.
