District Court says only IRI's foreign units can sue Nielsen

Published on .

A U.S. District Court in New York on July 14 dismissed part of Information Resources Inc.'s lawsuit against rival ACNielsen Corp., saying only IRI's foreign subsidiaries can sue for alleged anti-competitive practices by ACNielsen Corp. in Europe. Monica Weed, IRI general counsel, said it's unclear how much of the $350 million in alleged damages would be affected. ACNielsen Chairman-CEO Nicholas Trivisonno, however, called the ruling "a clear victory," saying the claims dismissed "a key part of IRI's lawsuit."
