A federal judge has said he may halt the merger of CVS Health and Hartford-based Aetna while he decides whether to sign off on the Justice Department's consent agreement that saw Aetna dump its Medicare Part D plans to clear anti-competitive concerns.

The companies closed the $69 billion deal last week. 

According to a CNBC report, Judge Richard Leon complained that the two sides treat him like a "rubber stamp" for the deal. CNBC also reported the judge's move is unusual.
