U.S. judge rules RadioShack IP auction was fair

(Reuters) - A U.S. judge on Wednesday cleared the way for RadioShack Corp to sell its brand name and customer data to a Standard General affiliate for about $26 million, rejecting a competing bidder's claim that the auction process was unfair.

Separately, RADIOSHACK (RSH.NY)said it consensually resolved objections to the sale from several state attorneys general who were concerned the deal could threaten consumers' privacy.
