sale may not be going through after all.
Jessica Toonkel of Reuters reports
that a federal judge in Los Angeles has issued a ruling that may prevent the Carlyle Group

Shortly after the announcement, EIG Global Energy Partners
filed a complaint
to block the sale, claiming that it violated the terms of EIG's separation from TCW.
Now, unless TCW can convince the judge to reverse the provisional ruling, the sale may be dead. Toonkel reports that a final ruling should be coming within days.
EIG has energy funds that compete directly with Carlyle's energy funds, according to Toonkel, and the lawsuit states that EIG's deal with TCW allows the firm to approve any sale.
