*(Via UrbanHollywood411.com) – The U.S. Supreme Court sided with Comcast Monday in Byron Allen’s racial discrimination lawsuit, ruling the media mogul must prove race was the sole reason the cable giant refused to carry his channels if the case is to move forward.

In a unanimous decision, the justices said a lower court used the wrong legal standard in allowing Allen’s $20 billion discrimination lawsuit to proceed, according to Variety. The High Court sent the case back to the San Francisco-based U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to reconsider Allen’s claims. Here is the Supreme Court’s full opinion.

Comcast said it welcomed Monday’s High Court ruling.

“We are pleased the Supreme Court unanimously restored certainty on the standard to bring and prove civil rights claims,” Comcast said. “The well-established framework that has protected civil rights for decades continues. The nation’s civil rights laws have not changed with this ruling; they remain the same as before the case was filed.”
