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

     1.   On November 25, 2003, the complainant, Baltimore 
Gas and Electric Company (``BGE''), filed a Consent Motion 
to Dismiss1 with prejudice the pole attachment Complaint 
that BGE filed on May 14, 2002 against the respondents, 
Cable Telecommunications Association of Maryland, Delaware & 
the District of Columbia, Adelphia Prestige Cablevision LLC, 
Millennium Digital Media, and Comcast Cable Communications, 
Inc.2  The Motion to Dismiss states that the parties have 
reached a settlement agreement that ``encompasse[s] all of 
the issues raised in the Complaint, and has rendered moot 
the issues in the Complaint proceeding.''3  BGE also states 
that it has been authorized to represent the consent of all 
parties to the case to its Motion to Dismiss.4

     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 of 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.  151, 154(i), 154(j), 224, and the 
authority delegated in sections 0.111 and 0.311 of the 
Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R.  0.111 and 0.311, that the 
Consent Motion to Dismiss is GRANTED, and that the Complaint 
is DISMISSED with prejudice.

     4.   IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the above-captioned 
proceeding is TERMINATED.
