Judge Won't Stop Time Warner Cable from Retransmitting 'Distant' CBS, NBC Signals

A Cahill litigation team prevailed on behalf of Time Warner Cable Inc. in an appeal filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit by Nexstar Broadcasting, Inc. who alleged that a retransmission consent agreement between the parties included a geographic limitation on the markets where Time Warner could retransmit Nexstar stations’ signals.

On May 30, 2013, the Fifth Circuit affirmed the ruling of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas in Time Warner’s favor, finding that Nexstar’s consent was not limited geographically.
