Federal Court of Appeals Affirms Dismissal of Antitrust Lawsuit Against Nielsen

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit affirmed the dismissal of Sunbeam Television Corporation's antitrust lawsuit against Nielsen on March 4, 2013. The District Court had found that Sunbeam failed to show that Nielsen blocked any competitor from establishing a syndicated television audience measurement service in the Miami market and lacked antitrust standing to assert its Sherman Act and Florida Antitrust Act claims against Nielsen. The court also found that Nielsen was justified in rolling out its Local People Meter service in Miami, replacing the previous Meter-Diary system. The 11th Circuit agreed.
