DirecTV Inc. sued two NDS Group plc subsidiaries for alleged misappropriation
of trade secrets, breach of contract, fraud and statutory violations relating to
the provision of NDS conditional-access services to DirecTV.
NDS claimed that the allegations are without merit.
DirecTV spokesman Bob Marsocci declined to detail what NDS allegedly did
wrong, noting that the case, filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, was
filed under seal.
