Redwood City, Calif.


Redwood City, Calif.-Cablevision Systems Corp. and Excite@Home Corp. agreed to end their legal fight, paving the way for AT & T Corp. to increase its voting control over the data-over-cable service provider.

Cablevision sued in June, claiming that an Excite@Home deal with AT & T that would increase AT & T's voting control to 74 percent violated an earlier deal with Cablevision. Excite@Home then countersued.

"The parties look forward to reaching an amicable resolution of this matter," Excite@Home said in a prepared statement.
