Time Warner Cable and Lost Angeles have settled a franchise fee lawsuit that has been going on since 2014. Details of the settlement haven’t been released.
The city of Los Angeles sued Time Warner Cable, alleging that the cable provider hadn’t paid franchise and other fees from 2008-2011. Time Warner Cable owed close to $10 million in those fees.
Time Warner Cable countersued, claiming that its users were overpaying municipal government fees in L.A., and were due to get refunds.
There’s no word on if the settlement addresses that counterclaim, but U.S. Magistrate Judge Jay Gandhi said in a court filing this week that the “parties have now reached a resolution and are memorializing an agreement.”
