U.S. Supreme Court to hear Comcast antitrust case

    A Philadelphia judge has declined to enforce a settlement in the Comcast Corp. class action antitrust lawsuit, leaving the decision to the highest court in the land.

    On Nov. 5, the Supreme Court Justices in Washington D.C. will hear and ultimately decide on the long-running suit, reports Philly.com. The lawsuit claims that Comcast “benefited by being able to control and raise cable prices after it clustered cable systems in the Philadelphia area through a series of swaps with other cable companies in the late 1990s.”
