Judge Approves Request to Revamp Rogers Communications Board

A Canadian judge approved a bid by Ed Rogers to reconstruct the board at Rogers Communications Inc., escalating a family feud for control of one of the country’s largest telecommunications companies.

Mr. Rogers, son of the cable-TV and wireless provider’s late founder Ted Rogers, had sought court approval to replace five of the company’s 14 directors after they opposed his efforts to replace its chief executive, Joe Natale and name new directors.
