US Cable Provider’s Antitrust Suit Tossed

 |  May 25, 2021

NfinityLink Communications failed to advance its antitrust fight against a Kentucky city, after a court found that the city was acting as an agent of the state in denying the cable company’s franchise application, reported Bloomberg Law.

In a May 24 order, the US District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky tossed NfinityLink’s lawsuit, which claimed that the City of Monticello improperly denied the application and ended a consulting relationship. 

The city, its city council, and a competitor, Community Telecom Services, were acting in accordance with state guidelines, the court ruled, dismissing all of NfinityLink’s claims.
