Sprint Nextel, affiliates both claim court victory

Both Sprint Nextel and its affiliates Horizon Personal Communications and Bright Personal Communications are claiming victory in a lawsuit regarding the Sprint-Nextel merger. The Delaware court's decision allows Sprint Nextel to continue to own and operate its iDEN network and finds that Sprint Nextel did not breach any of its confidentiality agreements to its affiliates. Sprint can sell products in RadioShack stores, but must continue to be mindful of its affiliates' confidentiality agreements. The carrier also can rebrand Nextel stores, but cannot sell CDMA products in those stores located in regions where Horizon and Bright operate, since the affiliates are the exclusive providers of CDMA services within their territories.
