Energy Transfer Equity LP (NYSE: ETE) officially killed its merger with Williams Cos. Inc. (NYSE: WMB) on June 29, though whether the issue remains dead is in doubt and up to the courts to decide.

“Williams recognizes the practical fact that ETE has refused to close the merger,” the company said in a statement responding to Energy Transfer’s decision, adding that “it is in the best interests of its stockholders to seek, among other remedies, monetary damages from ETE for its breaches.”

Williams filed an appeal with the Delaware Supreme Court on June 27, asking it to overturn the Delaware Court of Chancery’s June 24 ruling that allowed Energy Transfer to back out of the deal.
