Brantley v. NBC Universal, Inc., 09-56785

In a suit by a putative class of retail cable and satellite television subscribers alleging that the practice of defendant television programmers and distributors selling multi-channel cable packages is a restraint of trade that violates section 1 of the Sherman Act, the district court's dismissal for failure to state a claim is affirmed, where the plaintiffs did not allege facts showing that an injury to competition flowed from the defendants' tying arrangements.
