The plaintiffs had alleged that they had been denied their continuing exclusive right to provide cable service to a large apartment complex. Simul-Vision had originally entered its contract with the Seven Trails West Apartment complex in 1984. That contract provided that Simul-Vision would be the exclusive provider of cable television service to residents of Seven Trails. The jury’s verdict recognized that the breach defeated the original intentions of the parties that Simul-Vision would continue to have exclusive rights to provide cable service until a separate cable company would take over Simul-Vision’s existing cable system at the complex, compensating Simul-Vision on a per subscriber basis.
