Dish Network Corp. suffered another setback in its licensing battle with ESPN Inc. when an appeals court on April 2 shut the door on Dish’s claims that it overpaid by $56 million for rights to four ESPN-owned HD channels. In a brief order, the Appellate Division, First Department, affirmed a jury’s 2011 verdict that Dish isn’t entitled to the channels under a 2005 licensing agreement with ESPN. The court rejected Dish’s argument that a juror engaged in misconduct by disobeying orders not to take notes. The ruling is a win for longtime ESPN counsel David Yohai of Weil Gothsal & Manges, who squared off at oral argument against E. Joshua Rosenkranz of Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe.
