Dish Wins Reopening of Patent Lawsuit Against TiVo

Dish Network Corp., the satellite-television provider formerly known as EchoStar Communications Corp., won a ruling that reopens a 2005 patent-infringement lawsuit filed against TiVo Inc.

The ruling was made yesterday by a judge in Texas, according to a court filing. The suit occurred before EchoStar changed its name to Dish and spun off its EchoStar Corp. equipment unit in 2008. Dish will handle the case, said Marc Lumpkin, a spokesman for the Englewood, Colorado-based company.
