A federal judge ordered DirecTV on Wednesday to pull some, but not all, of its disputed ads in response to litigation by St. Louis-based Charter Communications.
Charter filed a federal lawsuit on Monday alleging that competitor DirecTV has sent mailers and run print and radio advertisements claiming Charter is in trouble because it filed for bankruptcy. Charter says the bankruptcy is simply restructuring its finances, that service to customers is not affected and that the ads are false and deceptive. DirectTV will be able to keep this billboard, on I-70 near downtown St. Louis.
