Should I dispute a credit card charge for television service for my father who has since entered a nursing home? 

Question Details:

This has to do with TV service for my father; contract signed 12/09 and he entered nursing home in 01/10 due to health. Sent proof of residency to the company and asked them to cancel his contract without penalty. Nursing home wouldn't allow him to hang satellite on their building. He was enrolled in autopay. Company charged his credit card a $380 cancellation fee; should we dispute? Do not want to hurt credit score but sure don't want to pay? If we do not dispute, they will have their money and we will never even have a chance to get it back.
