St. Louis woman drops lawsuit over boxing match outage

ST. LOUIS (AP) A Missouri woman quietly has dropped her breach-of-contract lawsuit that accused a cable provider of failing to televise the boxing match between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao.

A federal judge in St. Louis dismissed Anna Ralphs' lawsuit against Charter Communications on May 6. That was a day after Ralphs filed it, seeking class-action status.

Ralphs says she was among thousands of Charter pay-per-view customers in St. Louis who missed the fights leading up to the May 2 championship bout and much of the main event because of a cable outage.

Many cable and satellite systems were overwhelmed by the pay-per-view orders.

Ralphs' motion to dismiss the lawsuit didn't specify why she was doing so. A message seeking comment Thursday from her attorney wasn't returned.

Charter hasn't discussed Ralphs' suit.
