The parties have agreed to a settlement and
jointly asked the judge, Sam Glasscock, to dismiss the case.
An AT&T spokesperson declined to comment.
Al Jazeera was not immediately available for comment.
The second-largest U.S. telecom services provider in August
refused to carry a news channel launched by Al Jazeera in its
U-verse pay television service due to a dispute over terms of a
contract. [ID:nL1N0I811U] [ID:nL2N0GL1MU]
Al Jazeera sued in Delaware's Court of Chancery, claiming that
AT&T had broken and terminated their contract.
The settlement does not resolve a parallel challenge by
Bloomberg News and other media outlets to unseal court records
in the case. Glasscock ordered the records made public in
October and last month the Delaware Supreme Court dismissed Al
Jazeera's appeal of that ruling.
The case is Al Jazeera LLC v. AT&T Services Inc., Delaware
Chancery Court, No. 8823.
