Feb. 20, 2012 - PRLog -- Austin, TX- February 20, 2012- In the latest edition of Sports Litigation Alert, Neema Trivedi of Covington & Burling LLP discusses the ongoing litigation between the Tennis Channel and Comcast.

“In an Initial Decision released in December, the FCC’s Chief ALJ concluded that Comcast discriminates against the unaffiliated Tennis Channel in favor of its affiliated networks, the Golf Channel and Versus, on the basis of affiliation,” wrote Trivedi. “That discrimination, in turn, ‘unreasonably restrains [Tennis Channel’s] ability to compete fairly.’”
