Dish Network executive to apologize for shoving elderly man in court

When asked to hand over her computer, Carolyn Crawford lashed out at an opposing attorney’s father

Dish Network Corp. VP of programming Carolyn Crawford turned a courtroom into a circus when she caused a scene at a New York State Supreme Court trial between Dish and Cablevision Systems Corp.

Dish is accused of violating a 15-year programming deal with former Cablevision unit Voom HD, but that’s not the interesting part. On Tuesday, when the judge ordered Crawford to turn over her laptop, which may contain needed evidence for the case, she became furious and stormed out of court, but not before taking her anger out on someone.
