Herring Broadcasting (“WealthTV”) v. Bright House, Cox, et al.

1 minute read


In this case, Compass Lexecon expert Janusz Ordover, supported by Lacey Plache of Compass Lexecon’s Los Angeles office, testified at an FCC hearing in front of the administrative law judge on behalf of Bright House and Cox in a case involving a carriage complaint brought by Herring Broadcasting (“WealthTV”) against Bright House, Cox, and other MVPD defendants. WealthTV alleged that Bright House's and Cox's failure to carry the WealthTV network was discriminatory and restrained its ability to compete fairly. Professor Ordover testified on behalf of Bright House and Cox on economic issues related to the carriage complaint and demonstrated that the plaintiff had failed to support its claims. The administrative law judge issued a recommended decision to the full Commission in favor of the defendants. We worked with various members of Bright House's and Cox's legal teams, including R. Bruce Beckner of Fleischman and Harding LLP and David Mills and J. Parker Erkmann of Dow Lohnes PLLC.
