I didn't think they had a chance anyway (seems they never win cases that go to the Supreme Court). They don't a have a fundamental "right" to programming, and Justice Ginsberg agrees. Who are they taking to court next?

Well now they can get the YES Network because the money Charlie was willing to spend on Comcast could help defray the cost of getting the Yankees. CSN is also a very expensive channel.

EchoStar Can't Have Comcast SportsNet
A federal court Tuesday upheld a Federal Communications Commission ruling in 1999 that allowed Comcast Corp. to withhold Comcast SportsNet in Philadelphia from EchoStar Communications Corp.
It looks like cable will keep on beating Echostar like a redheaded stepchild for at least quite a few years more in the Philly Met Area.

I think it's because Comcast KNOWS they are nowhere near as good as Dish Network or DirecTV, so they are jealous. They use the CSN as payback of sorts.
