Nielsen, Flinn Settle Lawsuit, Counterclaim
May 17, 2016 at 4:36 AM (PT)
A settlement order has been filed in NIELSEN AUDIO INC.'s lawsuit against FLINN BROADCASTING CO
The order offers no details of the settlement, which covers FLINN's counterclaims as well. The settlement is with prejudice, meaning that other than if either party fails to live up to the settlement terms, the case cannot be refiled.
NIELSEN's suit alleged that FLINN did not pay its bill for ratings in the MEMPHIS market; FLINN counterclaimed with allegations that the PPM methodology was flawed and sought damages for breach of contract.
