Cablevision withdraws lawsuit

Restraining order was rejected by Courts

Cablevision Systems has withdrawn a lawsuit aimed at delaying deployment of RCN’s Megabank Network in Boston, RCN announced Monday.

The company said Cablevision’s suit and its attempt to secure a restraining order blocking RCN’s construction in the city had been rejected by both the District Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit.

A Cablevision spokesman wasn’t immediately available for comment. But the company had indicated in September that it is open to a sale of its cable TV systems in Boston, as well as those in Cleveland and Kalamazoo, Mich., to focus its efforts in and around New York.
