A rift between two pipeline companies in the midst of a $32.6 billion merger deepened on Wednesday after Williams Cos. sued buyer Energy Transfer Equity LP over private shares issued to help finance the deal.
Tulsa, Okla.,-based Williams separately filed a suit against Energy Transfer Chief Executive Kelcy Warren in a Texas court alleging wrongful interference with the Sept. 28 merger agreement between the two companies as a result of the private offering.
