Mediacom scored a point in its ongoing retrans dispute with Sincliar, with a federal judge on Mon denying the broadcaster’s motions to stay proceedings in the MSO’s antitrust suit against it.

Sinclair wanted to stay the proceeding pending Mediacom’s appeal of a decision that could have kept the broadcast stations on past a Dec 1 termination deadline.
