NDTV appeals for US trial against TAM
NDTV appeals for US trial against TAM

The New York court has ruled that India would be a more convenient forum than the USA for the TV ratings manipulation case New Delhi Television (NDTV) had filed against Nielsen and Kantar.

NDTV wasted no time but appeal against the decision. It said that the lower court’s verdict was based on “several misconceptions, legal and factual errors”, and “this would be outlined in the appeal.”

NDTV said, “The New York lower court did not go into the merits of the case on corruption in the Nielsen Process as used by Nielsen and Kantar through TAM, (Nielsen and Kantar are the owners of TAM). The court merely looked at where the location of the case should be heard. NDTV firmly believes it must be heard in New York and we will pursue this on appeal in New York.”
