   File No. EB-13-MD-003


   Adopted: December 4, 2013 Released: December 4, 2013

   By the Markets Dispute Resolution Division:

    1. On December 3, 2013, All American Telephone Co., Inc. (All American)
       filed a Motion to Stay Proceeding in the above-captioned litigation.^
       In the Motion, All American requests that this case be stayed pending
       the Commission's ruling on All American's Petition for Reconsideration
       in a separate matter before this Commission--AT&T Corp. v. All
       American Telephone Co., Inc. (AT&T v. All American).^ Sprint
       Communications Company, L.P. (Sprint) opposed the Motion.^

    2. We have reviewed the Motion and Opposition and find no basis for
       granting All American's request. As the Enforcement Bureau previously
       has held, this complaint proceeding is a separate matter from AT&T v.
       All American, and each case will be decided on its own record.^
       Granting the Motion would serve only to unnecessarily delay this

    3. IT IS HEREBY ORDERED, pursuant to Sections 4(i), 4(j), and 208 of the
       Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. SS 154(i), 154(j),
       and 208, and Sections 1.720-1.736 of the Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R.
       SS 1.720-1.736, and the authority delegated by Sections 0.131 and
       0.331 of the Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R. SS 0.131, 0.331, that All
       American's Motion to Stay Proceeding is DENIED.
