Judge rules in favor of Orioles in MASN Court Case

Nearly six months after the trial hearing, and three years after the dispute began between MASN and the Nationals, the verdict is in on the court case involving tens of millions of dollars of rights fees. The thirty-page decision provides the immediate conclusion that the court has thrown out the ruling made by baseball’s panel - a victory for the Orioles - but offers no other resolution to the case.

Page 27 of the ruling is particularly interesting.

Under the circumstances, the Court concludes that this complete inaction objectively demonstrates an utter lack of concern for fairness of the proceeding that is “so inconsistent with basic principles of justice” that the award must be vacated.
