“… Cigna defers to Anthem and to the conclusion in Anthem’s brief that this court should reverse the district court’s February 8, 2017 order in its entirety, vacate the injunction and rule for Anthem and Cigna permitting the proposed merger … to proceed,” said Cigna Attorney Charles Rule in the March 2 court document.
