A federal judge has once again certified a class action antitrust suit against cable television giant Comcast Corp., declaring that the plaintiffs have succeeded in satisfying a new, stricter class action test imposed last year by the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

The suit, Behrend v. Comcast Corp., alleges the company set out to establish a monopoly in the Philadelphia market in order to increase prices once it had eliminated all the competition.
