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.
