CEO Thomas Rutledge says they are willing to go to court for years with New York if the situation can't be settled.

The CEO of Charter Communications, the parent company of Spectrum, says the company plans to fight to stay in New York after state regulators recently ordered the cable provider to leave the state.

CEO Thomas Rutledge says they are willing to go to court for years with New York if the situation can't be settled.

The New York State Public Service Commission ordered Charter to get out of the state within six months because it failed to meet deadlines to expand its network to rural areas as part of its merger with Time Warner.

Charter argues network location was never part of the original agreement and has extended its service to more than 86,000 homes.
