Judge rejects AT&T Request to pull Verizon ad, AT&T Responds with Anti-Verizon Ad

verizon-island-of-misfit-toys.jpg Break out the popcorn wireless fans, the battle between AT&T and Verizon Wireless is getting ugly! A judge has rejected AT&T's request to pull the Verizon 3G ad which compares Verizon's 3G map footprint vs. AT&T's 3G map footprint where AT&T's 3G footprint looks downright pathetic.

Although the judge rejected AT&T's request, he was not without some sympathy. Judge Batten said people might "misunderstand" the commercials, "but that doesn't mean they're misleading." and he said "Most people who are watching TV are semi-catatonic," he said, prompting laughter. "They're not fully alive."

AT&T didn't take the news so well, so they released an anti-Verizon Wireless ad of their own. Check it out:


Oh and here are two of the ads Verizon released that ticked off AT&T setting in motion the lawsuit:
