                              ORDER

   Adopted:  December 19, 2001          Released:   December  20, 

2001

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

On June 21,  2000, the  Commission issued an  order granting  and 
denying in part  a formal  complaint filed by  TSR Wireless,  LLC 
(``TSR'') against U S West Communications, Inc. (``Qwest'').1  On 
August 21, 2000, TSR filed a supplemental complaint against Qwest 
seeking damages based on  the Commission's finding of  liability.  
Qwest denied TSR's damages claims.

On December 8, 2000, TSR filed a voluntary petition under Chapter 
7 of the United States Bankruptcy Code.  Consequently, Charles M. 
Forman, as  the  Chapter  7 trustee  (``the  Trustee'')  for  the 
bankruptcy estate  of TSR,  became the  successor-in-interest  to 
TSR's claims against Qwest.  The Trustee and Qwest later  entered 
into a  settlement  agreement,  the  basic  terms  of  which  the 
bankruptcy court approved on August 29, 2001.  This agreement was 
subsequently formalized, executed, and approved by the bankruptcy 
court on December  5, 2001.   On December 18,  2001, the  parties 
filed with the Commission a Joint Motion to Dismiss  Supplemental 
Complaint With  Prejudice  in which  they  state that  they  have 
resolved the damages  issues raised in  this proceeding and  have 
settled their  dispute in  a mutually  satisfactory manner.   The 
parties therefore ask  the Commission to  dismiss this case  with 
prejudice.

We are satisfied  that dismissing this  complaint 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.

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, 0.311,  that  the  Joint Motion  to  Dismiss  Supplemental 
Complaint With Prejudice IS GRANTED.

IT IS FURTHER 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, 0.311,  that  the  supplemental complaint  in  the  above-
captioned proceeding  IS DISMISSED  WITH PREJUDICE  and that  the 
proceeding IS TERMINATED.
