HC disposes Times Group’s interim injunction plea against Republic TV

The Delhi High Court order yesterday (September 1, 2017) has disposed of the interim application for injunction asked for by Times Group against Republic TV. 

It may be recalled that Times Group had approached the Delhi High Court, alleging breach of employment contract and the misuse of intellectual property of Times Now by Republic TV. 

At the heart of the matter are the audio tapes played during two stories aired on Republic TV – on Sunanda Pushkar and Lalu Prasad Yadav. 

In a short oral order, Justice Manmohan stated: “On 26.5.17, senior counsels for defendants (Republic TV) had specifically denied that clauses are violated. Lawyers for Republic TV stated they had no intention to violate aforesaid clauses. The said statements made by them in terms thereof are accepted by this court as an undertaking and defendants are held bound by it. In view of this, the interim injunction application is disposed of in terms of above.”
