USA based website Yahoo says that it has been hit with a USD2.7 billion fine in Mexico which it is now contesting.

In a brief statement, Yahoo said that the 49th Civil Court of the Federal District of Mexico City had entered a non-final judgment of USD2.7 billion against Yahoo and Yahoo de Mexico in a lawsuit brought by plaintiffs Worldwide Directories and Ideas Interactivas.

The plaintiffs alleged claims of breach of contract, breach of promise, and lost profits arising from contracts related to a yellow pages listings service.

Yahoo said that the claims are without merit and it will pursue all appeals with vigor.
