ENGLEWOOD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 6, 2003--U.S. District Court Judge Edward Nottingham in Denver has awarded EchoStar Communications Corp. $5.5 million in a case against a former retailer that conducted itself fraudulently.

EchoStar attorneys argued that Sky Cable defrauded EchoStar, breached their contract, set up false accounts, and engaged in a form of piracy called account-packing.

The court ruled that Sky Cable of Pennsylvania improperly sold EchoStar's DISH Network satellite TV services and equipment, in conflict with a retailer agreement that Sky Cable signed with EchoStar in 1997 and re-executed in 1999.

Jim DeFranco, executive vice president of EchoStar, said he was pleased with the verdict.
