Supreme Court Ends EchoStar/NDS Suit

The U.S. Supreme Court denied a petition to hear the challenge by Dish Network, EchoStar Communications, EchoStar Technologies and NagraStar, a joint venture company between the EchoStar parties and Kudelski Group, to a Ninth Circuit decision in which NDS was stated to be the sole prevailing party in a lawsuit between EchoStar and NDS.

The Supreme Court's denial ends the challenge to the Ninth Circuit's award against EchoStar in August 2010, which awarded NDS $18 million and the release of a further $4.3 million of NDS' funds held in escrow pending the appeals. NDS is seeking a further $1.7 million in attorney's fees, costs and interest.
