Supreme Court

"...the Supreme Court refused to hear the case, granting Cablevision the green light to deploy the service."

So if the Supreme Court doesn't want to review the case, the "defendant", Cablevision in this case, gets the green light?

That's interesting... Good for Cablevision and maybe the customers.

Yes. The case was to prevent CableVision from rolling out the service. Since the Supreme Court won't hear the case there is nothing (legal) preventing CV from starting the roll out.

In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

When the Supreme Court refuses to review, the latest judgment/ruling from the previous court (typically an appellate court) then stands and takes effect. In this case, Cablevision had won it's last round, so that's the ruling that takes effect.

The case was heard by other courts... you just can't file with the supreme court.. that's just the last step in other courts on the ladder.

I doubt it will be good for customers. I'd rather see a thriving 3rd party market for dvr's. Cable companies could sell them like cellphones.
