Judge Tells Station To Stop Saying It's Number One

First, a VENTURA COUNTY jury awarded $553,000 on NOVEMBER 6th to GOLD COAST RADIO, owner of Regional Mexican KMLA (LA M 103.7)/OXNARD-VENTURA, and promoter UNIVERSO MUSICAL after finding that competitor LAZER BROADCASTING intentionally interfered with GOLD COAST's customers, advertisers and artists.
Now, in an order issued THURSDAY, a judge has handed LAZER a victory by enjoining GOLD COAST RADIO from claiming that KMLA is number one in VENTURA COUNTY. The VENTURA COUNTY STAR reports that Superior Court Judge HENRY WALSH ruled that the "number one" promos are false and misleading.
LAZER attorney GREG RAMIREZ told the STAR that a hearing has been set for DECEMBER 18th on his motion to set aside the NOVEMBER 6th verdict.
