Robins Kaplan LLP Announces Class Action Against National Football League, Inc. and DirecTV over Anticompetitive Sunday Ticket Package

Robins Kaplan LLP filed an antitrust lawsuit on behalf of a proposed nationwide class of commercial establishments, including restaurants and sports bars, against the National Football League, Inc. (NFL) and DirecTV, alleging that agreements giving DirecTV the sole right to distribute 'out-of-market' NFL games - through its expensive 'Sunday Ticket' package - violate U.S. antitrust law. The lawsuit, filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California, seeks monetary and injunctive relief on behalf of commercial television subscribers of the Sunday Ticket. Through its latest agreement with the NFL, DirecTV paid the league $1.5 billion for exclusive out-of-market broadcasting rights in 2015 alone. The lawsuit alleges that the defendants violated antitrust law both through a horizontal conspiracy among all NFL teams (to bundle their broadcast rights together) and a vertical conspiracy among the NFL teams, the NFL, and DirecTV.
