Country Music Television, Time Warner Cable Legal Tussle Lands in Dallas County Courtroom
A search of county records shows that a hearing's been set on the matter on June 27 at 10 a.m. in the 44th District Court.
But this much is clear: The suit stems from Time Warner's threat to drop CMT. As in:
The underlying action is brought by Plaintiffs against Defendants Time Warner Cable, Inc. ... arising out of TWC's threats to cease distribution of Country Music Television to TWC subscribers who receive CMT as customers of TWC's cable systems. Plaintiffs allege TWC is breaching its contract to distribute CMT to its customers and is tortiously interfering with Plaintiffs' relationship with CMT advertisers.
