WCVB-TV Boston denied injunction against Aereo


AereoThe ruling comes as stations are readying to take the fight against the TV streaming service to the Supreme Court: Federal Judge Nathaniel Gorton issued a ruling in the US District Court for the District of Massachusetts denying Hearst Stations’ WCVB-TV (ABC) a motion against Aereo for a preliminary injunction against the company.
