According to the filing, as presented in the Times article (Dec. 1, 2006, page C1), NBCU accused TV Azteca of attempting to undermine its operations in Mexico. One example cited is the shutdown of production of a show on Telemundo, Quinceañera. NBCU accused TV Azteca of hiring undercover police officers to enforce the shutdown; the show's production was moved to Miami, Florida as a result.
Two days later, Azteca fired back. Its chairman, Luis Echarte, said this when noting he insists the local marketing agreement is legitimate and that NBC Universal's allegations "ridiculous" :
“It’s obviously a ploy to damage our image, given our strong performance in the U.S.,” he says. “KAZA is owned by Pappas. We’ve been paying rent to Pappas to operate the station for three years.”
