YES Sues Time Warner Cable


Yankees Entertainment & Sports Network feels short-changed by Time Warner Cable.

The regional sports network, owned by Major League Baseball’s New York Yankees, filed a lawsuit claiming that the cable operator was at least $1.5 million short in licensing fees over the past 22 months, AP reported.

According to papers YES filed in Manhattan's state Supreme Court, Time Warner has been miscalculating licensing fees due to the network since Feb. 1, 2005, AP reported.

YES asked the court to find that Time Warner breached its contract and to award YES compensatory damages, expenses and attorneys' fees related to the lawsuit, according to AP.

Time Warner spokesman Mark Harrad said Wednesday that he was aware of the lawsuit but could not comment on pending litigation. YES lawyer Robert M. Cooper had no comment, according to AP.
