                              ORDER 


Adopted:  November 21, 2005             Released:  November 29, 
2005


By the Deputy Chief, Market Disputes Resolution Division:

    1.    On April 26, 2002, each of the above-captioned 
      complainants filed with this Commission a separate formal 
      complaint against the above-designated defendants 
      asserting that the Defendants violated sections 201(b) and 
      203(c) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended (the 
      ``Act'') and Part 69 of the Commission's rules1 by 
      improperly assessing end user common line (``EUCL'') 
      charges on the Complainant's payphones.2 

    2.    On October 13, 2005, Complainants IMR, Indiana and 
      National filed motions requesting that we dismiss the 
      applicable formal complaint in this proceeding with 
      prejudice, as the parties have settled their dispute.3  We 
      grant each of the Complainants' motions to dismiss the 
      formal complaint, with prejudice.  We find that dismissal 
      at this stage is appropriate and will serve the public 
      interest by promoting the private resolution of disputes 
      and eliminating the expenditure of further time and 
      resources of the parties and the Commission.


    3.    ACCORDINGLY, IT IS ORDERED, pursuant to sections 1, 
      4(i), 4(j), and 208 of the Communications Act, as amended, 
      47 U.S.C.  151, 154(i), 154(j), 208, sections 1.720-
      1.736 of the Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R.  1.720-1.736, 
      and the authority delegated by sections 0.111 and 0.311 of 
      the Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R.  0.111 and 0.311, that 
      the above-captioned complaints ARE DISMISSED WITH 
      PREJUDICE in their entirety and the proceedings ARE 
      TERMINATED.
