The judge who ruled the case held that MTN had admitted guilt by not challenging the action. According to him:

“The plaintiff has the right to allow or reject the use of a caller tune. MTN cannot force the use of any caller tune on him or anybody because it is unlawful. “Though the plaintiff sought N10 million as damages, but I hold that any damage suffered must be commensurate with the claim. “I, hereby, award a cost of N500,000 for the damages suffered and another N30,000 as cost incurred during the court process,” he said.
