Clarence Thomas says no to EchoStar

EchoStar's attempt to avoid a court ruling requiring it to cease delivering distant network signals to its satellite TV subscribers has met an apparent dead end.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas refused to stay a ruling by the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordering EchoStar to halt network feeds to thousands of its DISH subscribers.

EchoStar argued that it faced “irreparable harm” to its business if it was made to shut down the feeds. The company had asked Thomas, who hears emergency requests for the 11th circuit, to stay the lower court decision while the full Supreme Court considered whether to take its appeal.

EchoStar said that turning off network feeds “could have a material impact” on its third quarter financial results.
