AT&T settles Al Jazeera lawsuit

AT&T (T) settled a lawsuit with Al Jazeera over the refusal to carry a news channel launched by the latter last August in its U-verse pay television service. AT&T refused due to a dispute over the terms of the agreement.

Al Jazeera sued the telecom giant in Delaware's Court of Chancery, claiming AT&T had broken and terminated their contract.

    An AT&T spokesperson wanted to say "we thought it best to settle and not take the chance of being blown up".
