Released: October 29, 2001


By the Chief, Market Disputes Resolution Division, Enforcement 

Bureau:

     ????????????????????????1.     On March 16, 2000, Time 

Warner Telecom Inc. (``Time Warner Telecom'') filed a formal 

complaint against Sprint Communications  Company L.P. 

(``Sprint'') alleging that Sprint violated section 201(b) of the 

Communications Act of 1934, as amended (the ``Act''), 47 U.S.C.  

201(b), by failing to pay the full billed amounts for interstate 

access services provided by Time Warner Telecom to Sprint.  On 

August 29, 2001, Sprint filed a formal complaint against Time 

Warner Telecom alleging that Time Warner Telecom violated 

sections 201(b), 202(a), and 203(c) of the Act, 47 U.S.C.  

201(b), 202(a), 203(c).  Sprint alleged, among other things, that 

Time Warner Telecom's access rates were unjust and unreasonable.  

On October 26, 2001, the parties filed a Joint Motion to Dismiss 

with Prejudice in which the parties stated that, because they 

have
resolved all of the issues raised in these two proceedings and 

have settled their disputes in a mutually satisfactory manner, 

the Commission should dismiss these two complaints with 

prejudice.

     2.   We are satisfied that dismissing these complaints 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), 201(b), 202(a), 203(c), and 208 of the Communications 

Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C.  151, 154(i), 154(j), 

201(b), 202(a), 203(c), and 208, and the authority delegated in 

sections 0.111 and 0.311 of the Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R.  

0.111, 0.311, that the Joint Motion to Dismiss with Prejudice IS 

GRANTED.

     4.   IT IS FURTHER ORDERED, pursuant to sections 1, 4(i), 

4(j), 201(b), 202(a), 203(c), and 208 of the Communications Act 

of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C.  151, 154(i), 154(j), 201(b), 

202(a), 203(c), and 208, and the authority delegated in sections 

0.111 and 0.311 of the Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R.  0.111, 

0.311, that the above-captioned complaints ARE DISMISSED WITH 

PREJUDICE and that the proceedings ARE TERMINATED.
