Judge Tells AT&T to Stop Whining as the Verizon Ads Will Stay

Illustration for article titled Judge Tells ATT to Stop Whining as the Verizon Ads Will Stay

Looks like we'll keep seeing Verizon's "There's a map for that" commercials as AT&T's injunction to have them taken off the air was denied. Unfortunately this isn't the end of this debacle as the judge is allowing a follow-up hearing.


U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Batten Sr remarked that people might "misunderstand" the commercials, "but that doesn't mean they're misleading." He continued to add that "most people who are watching TV are semi-catatonic" to begin with. Let's hope his train of thought remains during the follow-up hearing on December 16, because the case is starting to lose any entertainment value. [AJC via Engadget]
