Delaware Judge Lifts Secrecy Surrounding Al Jazeera-AT&T Inc Case-Reuters


Monday, 14 Oct 2013 04:32pm EDT 

Reuters reported that Al Jazeera must unseal its lawsuit against AT&T Inc within five business days after a Delaware judge sided on October 14, 2013 with news organizations that objected to secrecy in the case. The dispute stems from AT&T's refusal to carry the U.S. news network that was launched by the Qatar-based Al Jazeera in August. The two sides have sought to keep under seal all information regarding their contract, which Al Jazeera said was breached and wrongfully terminated by AT&T. The two argued that making such information public would hurt their negotiations with other channels and cable companies. Sam Glasscock, the judge overseeing the case, said he found that neither Al Jazeera nor AT&T established that good cause existed to keep the pertinent aspects of lawsuit under seal. The judge also ordered unsealed a transcript from a September 24 hearing. But the details of the lawsuit may still remain out of the public eye. Glasscock said the parties could appeal and ask the Supreme Court of Delaware to keep the case under wraps. AT&T, which has said Al Jazeera's lawsuit mischaracterized the dispute, said it did not plan to appeal. The case is Al Jazeera LLC v. AT&T Services Inc., Delaware Chancery Court, No. 8823.
