        Adopted:  January 21, 2003      Released:   January   23, 
2003

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

On November 18, 2002, Nextel Communications, Inc. and Nextel 
Partners, Inc. (``Nextel'') filed with this Commission a formal 
complaint against David M. Allen and Allen Wireless Group 
(``Allen'') pursuant to section 208 of the Communications Act of 
1934, as amended (the ``Act''), 47 U.S.C.  208.  The complaint 
alleged, inter alia, that Allen had refused to negotiate in good 
faith with Nextel for the relocation of Allen's ``upper 200'' 
channel 800 MHz facilities, in violation of section 90.699 of the 
Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R.  90.699.   

On January 17, 2003, Nextel filed a Motion to Dismiss Complaint 
Without Prejudice (``Motion to Dismiss'')1 which stated that the 
parties had entered into a settlement pursuant to an Asset 
Exchange Agreement under which Allen's ``upper 200'' 800 MHz 
licenses will be relocated in accordance with 47 CFR 90.699.  
The Motion to Dismiss further stated that counsel for Allen had 
reviewed the motion, and had consented to it on Allen's behalf. 

 We are satisfied that dismissing the complaint 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 this 
Commission.

Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED, pursuant to sections 4(i), 4(j), and 
208 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C.  
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 Motion To Dismiss the above-captioned complaint 
IS GRANTED.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED, pursuant to sections 4(i), 4(j), and 208 
of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C.  
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 Nextel's formal complaint against Allen IS DISMISSED 
WITHOUT PREJUDICE.
