The Circuit Court of Cook County Illinois has handed Sprint affiliate iPCS a long-sought victory over Sprint Nextel. The court sided with iPCS's claim that Sprint's purchase of Nextel caused it to violate a no-compete clause in their affiliate agreement with iPCS. The court ordered Sprint Nextel to sell all its iDEN assets in areas where iPCS operates its business.

a deal is a deal is a deal, this is a good lesson, don't mess with the underdog.
Underdog being a relative term in this case. Wow! Sprint really screwed up. Nextel was poison. They should have used that money to buy Alltel. It would have been a perfect fit.

Why doesn't Sprint raise the capital to buy these guys out like they did all the other affiliates when they foolishly acquired Nextel? Will iPCS not sell?
I don't think Sprint is in a position to buy anyone after purchasing Nextel and bleeding customers, not to mention the 25 billion they lost on it.

iPCS is the stupidest company. They dont care about anyone but themselves and are screwing over users in teh area.
Relax, this is only a circuit court and the lowest step on the totem pole, Sprint like always will appeal this ruling and take it higher.
