Federal judge re-instates Byron Allen's $20 billion lawsuit against Comcast, Time Warner

(August 20, 2015) Federal Judge Terry Hatter, who two weeks ago dismissed a lawsuit filed by Byron Allen's Entertainment Studios Networks, Inc. and the National Association of African-American Owned Media against Time Warner and Comcast, today issued a ruling re-admitting the complaint. Judge Hatter's earlier dismissal ruled that the Plaintiffs had failed to allege a claim for relief.

Allen and NAAAOM, following the dismissa,l promised to appeal the decision and continue their suit against the cable companies, Rev. Al Sharpton, and others.

"We will continue to vigorously pursue Comcast and Time Warner Cable, who spend approximately $25 billion annually licensing cable networks with less than $3 million going to 100% African American owned media," said Mark DeVitre, President of NAAAOM. "We will not stop until the discrimination stops and we achieve true economic inclusion."

Orders issued by Judge Hatter said "Counsel are hereby notified that this case is reopened and the Plaintiff will be given until September 21, 2015 in which to file an amended complaint."
