Morris Communications Corporation v. PGA Tour
United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida
235 F.Supp.2d 1269 (2002)
The PGA Tour (defendant) instituted Online Service Regulations (OLSR) which required all media outlets wanting access to real-time professional golf scores in order to post the information on their own websites, to become credentialed. The PGA Tour acknowledged that the OLSR were implemented in order to maintain a commercial advantage. Morris Communication Corporation (Morris) (plaintiff) lost its status as a credentialed member when it sought to sell scoring information to third-party, non-credentialed media outlets in violation of the OLSR. Morris then brought suit against the PGA Tour for violations of antitrust laws. The PGA Tour filed a motion for summary judgment/dismissal.
