Oz Seven TV Trial Resumes

08 February 2006

SYDNEY - Australia's A$1.1 billion ($818m; €682m; £467m) media trial could grind on for another three years warns the presiding judge, after the failure of mediation between Seven Network, News Ltd, Publishing & Broadcasting and Telstra.
   In the case, which started in September and has just resumed, broadcaster Seven alleges its pay TV arm, C7, was destroyed in 2002 as a result of collusion by the three media giants battling for sports events rights.
