Baltimore Orioles/TCR Sports Broadcasting Holding v. Comcast SportsNet

In 2005, Arnold Weiner, Celeste Bruce, Barry Gogel, Alan Rifkin and both the Sport Law, Gaming and Facilities and Complex Commercial and Civil Ligitation practice groups successfully defended the Baltimore Orioles and TCR Sports Broadcasting Holding against a lawsuit by Comcast SportsNet, which claimed a right of first refusal for the telecast rights of the Baltimore Orioles.  Dismissal of the case affirmed the Orioles’ right to operate the regional sports network now known as the Mid Atlantic Sports Network (MASN®).  Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic L.P. v. Baltimore Orioles L.P., et al., No. 260751-V  (Md. Cir. Court for Montgomery County 2005) (affirmed, 391 Md. 577 (2006))
