(Newser) – A series of Verizon ads that rip AT&’s 3G network are “sneaky,” a judge ruled today, but aren’t misleading and can stay on the air. AT&T had tried to shut down the “There’s A Map For That” spots, but won’t get its way—at least until Dec. 16, when there’s another hearing on the matter. Meantime, the judge said, viewers might “misunderstand” the commercials, “but that doesn’t mean they’re misleading.”
