   Adopted: June 12, 2007 Released: June 12, 2007

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

    1. On May 31, 2007, the complainant, Comcast of Arkansas, Inc.,
       ("Comcast"), and the respondent, Entergy Arkansas, Inc., ("Entergy")
       filed a joint motion seeking to dismiss with prejudice the Complaint
       that Comcast filed against Entergy in this action. The Complaint
       alleges, inter alia, that Entergy violated section 224 of the
       Communications Act by denying Comcast access to certain of its poles
       and by imposing unjust and unreasonable rates, terms, and conditions
       of pole attachment. In the Motion, the parties stipulate that "the
       dispute giving rise to the Complaint and all claims and counterclaims
       asserted in such proceeding have been satisfactorily resolved" and
       request that the Commission terminate this proceeding.

    2. 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 by the parties and this Commission.

    3. Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED, pursuant to sections 1, 4(i), 4(j), and
       224 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. SS 151,
       154(i), 154(j), and 224, and the authority

   delegated in sections 0.111, 0.311, and 1.1401-1.1418 of the Commission's
   rules, 47 C.F.R. SS 0.111, 0.311, and 1.1401-1.1418, that the Motion is
   GRANTED, and that the Complaint is DISMISSED with prejudice.
