Skating Organization Files Lawsuit: The Sports Business Daily (subscription required) reports that the World Skating Federation has filed a lawsuit against the International Skating Union and its president, Octavio Cinquanta, for anti-competitive conduct. The suit claims that ISF and Cinquanta improperly maintain a monopoly over the sport of figure skating and related markets by threatening to blacklist or banish any person who provides support to the WSF.

Update: ISU President Cinquanta has denied any allegations of monopolistic behavior.
