Law 360: MLB, NHL Viewers Press NY Judge To Certify Antitrust Class

Mar 19, 2015

“What we’re talking about here is a basic division of the market horizontally into exclusive territories,” Ned Diver tells Law 360 in MLB, NHL Viewers Press NY Judge To Certify Antitrust Class.

Fans who say they’ve been overcharged to watch baseball and hockey as a result of collusion between the two sports’ major leagues and broadcasters, including Comcast Corp. and DirecTV LLC, pressed a Manhattan federal judge Thursday to certify an antitrust class — and to leave their expert witness in the proceedings. Law 360’s Peter Brush reported on the class certification hearing before U.S. District Judge Shira A. Scheindlin.
