Village Voice Ordered To Pay $15.6M To Competitor
We never knew that liberal-leaning alternative newspapers could be a bastion of anti-competitive behavior, but a judge in San Francisco has imposed $15.6 million in damages against SF Weekly and its parent Village Voice Media for predatory pricing.
The judgment comes in a lawsuit by the rival San Francisco Bay Guardian, which accused VVM of illegally pricing its product below-cost in an effort to put a competitor out of business.
