By the Deputy Chief, Market Disputes Resolution Division, 
Enforcement Bureau:


          1.   This matter comes before the Commission as a 
Joint Motion of AT&T Corporation and Southwestern Bell 
Telephone Company, Pacific Bell, and Nevada Bell to Dismiss 
With Prejudice (Joint Motion). The above-captioned complaint 
addresses the defendants' practice of improperly assessing 
carrier common line charges for interstate calls involving 
certain optional calling services. 

     2.   We are satisfied that granting this motion to 
dismiss with prejudice will serve the public interest by 
promoting the private resolution of disputes and by 
eliminating the need for further litigation and the 
expenditure of further time and resources of the parties and 
of this Commission.

     3.   Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED, pursuant to sections 
1, 4(i), 4(j), and 208 of the Communications Act of 1934, as 
amended, 47 U.S.C.  151, 154(i), 154(j), and 208, and the 
authority delegated in sections 0.111 and 0.311 of the 
Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R.  0.111 and 0.311, that the 
Joint Motion to Dismiss With Prejudice IS GRANTED.

     4.   IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the above-captioned 
complaint IS DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE and that this 
proceeding IS TERMINATED.
