NFL hammered for billions in Sunday Ticket antitrust verdict

USA Today

The decision in the “NFL Sunday Ticket” anti-trust case was rendered Thursday and the league took a pummeling. A group of “plaintiffs” who purchased the package won a judgment of $4.7 billion from the Los Angeles, CA, jury, while “bar owners” were awarded $96 million.

Per the Hollywood Reporter:

A Los Angeles jury on Thursday agreed with fans who claimed they overpaid for NFL Sunday Ticket, according to NFL. The decision, which was reached after less than a full day of deliberations, could force the league to change its broadcast model that’s made it the most popular sports league in the country.

Some more of what the legalese of the decision covers.

The league was disappointed — surprise! — by the decision of the California court.

The damage could be steeper because antitrust damages can treble.
