DirecTV Drops Dish Network Lawsuit Over Ad Campaign (Update2) - BusinessWeekApril 14 (Bloomberg) -- DirecTV, the largest U.S. satellite-television provider, dropped a lawsuit in which it accused Dish Network Corp. of running a false advertising campaign on nationwide TV, according to a court filing.
DirecTV sued Dish in February, seeking to halt the advertisements that asserted Dish charges $24 less a month for the same services as DirecTV. A federal judge in New York denied DirecTV’s bid to block the ads immediately.
The parties “stipulate to the dismissal of the entirety of the action,” according to a one-sentence court filing today by attorneys for both sides. There were no additional details.
Dish has also agreed to drop claims it brought against DirecTV, according to the filing.
