Submission + - Novell Sale Delayed Until April Due to Patents-> 1

darthcamaro writes: Novell's $2.2 billion dollar acquisition by Attachmate isn't going to close as soon as first expected.

The U.S. Department of Justice is investigating the patent deal and is now pushing out the close until at least April 12th. Does this mean the deal is in trouble?
