       prejudice will serve the public interest by eliminating the need for
       further litigation and the expenditure of further time and resources
       of the parties and this Commission.

    4. 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. S:S: 151,
