Dish Network Granted $214.9 Million Judgment Against Prisoner

Dish Network Corp., the second-largest satellite television provider in the U.S., won a $214.9 million judgment against an imprisoned maker of piracy software used to unscramble encrypted subscription programs.

U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez awarded the damages in an amended order posted yesterday on the electronic docket of the case in San Diego federal court. That order amended an earlier judgment, also posted yesterday, in which the judge had awarded Dish $300 million in damages.
