Charter Response to Supreme Court Denial of Appeal in Landmark Santa Cruz, CA Franchise Case
"Although we're disappointed, our efforts did achieve much for Charter and for the cable industry. First, the Solicitor General's brief, as well as the 53-page District Court opinion, clearly indicated that local franchising authorities are not permitted to supplant their own wish list for Federal principles. Second, by resisting improper demands from consultants, we have deterred some of their more unreasonable positions, and have made transfers more achievable for the industry."
