Vivendi/T-Mobile legal fight resurfaces

French media company Vivendi turned up the heat on its $7.5 billion lawsuit against T-Mobile USA, parent company Deutsche Telekom and a wealthy Polish businessman that claims the three allegedly defrauded Vivendi out of a $2.5 billion investment it made in Polska Telefonica Cyfrowa (PTC). The latest move in the 7-year-old lawsuit saw Vivendi filing a 54-page amended complaint to a Seattle court. New additions to the claim include that T-Mobile USA allegedly enjoyed an unlawful benefit of racketeering by DT since it could pay for its $4.2 billion worth of AWS spectrum last year.
