Court Rules Against Federal Communications Commission's Handling of Confidential Data Tied to the Proposed Deal
May 9 15
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit issued a long-anticipated ruling in a dispute between the FCC and several TV programming companies. The broadcasters had objected to the proposed dissemination of their confidential business information as part of the FCC's review of two media mergers. CBS Corp., 21st Century Fox, Walt Disney Co. and Viacom Inc. sued the FCC over the agency's plan to allow third parties to inspect the programmers' business contracts. At the time, the FCC was compiling an extensive archive of documents as part of its probe into whether the two mergers AT&T's bid to acquire DirecTV, and Comcast Corp.'s now scuttled purchase of Time Warner Cable would alter competition. But the broadcasters cried foul. They said they didn't want their business rivals to inspect their confidential contracts. The court agreed, ruling that the process that the FCC had set up was flawed. Even though the FCC had configured a mechanism that it hoped would protect confidentiality, the broadcasters worried that their rivals were taking advantage of the situation to gain access to sensitive contract data, including the affiliate fees that they are paid. he broadcasters' lawsuit did not delve into the merits of the proposed combination of AT&T and DirecTV or the failed Comcast-TWC merger. Instead, the lawsuit served as something of a speed bump, slowing the FCC's review of the deals. To allow the case to play out in court, the FCC stopped its informal 'shot clock' on the merger review. The FCC's 180-day clock is a countdown of the number of days that the agency ideally would need to complete its review of a merger. The FCC declined to say when it might restart the AT&T deal clock. When the FCC stopped the clock in March, there were just 10 days remaining on its review of the proposed AT&T takeover of DirecTV. To be sure, the FCC's clock is simply a guideline and not a firm deadline to complete its review. Industry observers believe the government will approve AT&T's proposed $49 billion purchase of DirecTV, which is based in El Segundo, within the next few weeks. However, opposition has been building.
