Verizon v. Sprint lawsuit

Verizon has filed a lawsuit against Sprint in a federal court in Delaware, reports say. The former company alleges that Sprint has not only failed to pay almost $10 million in interconnection charges, but has in fact repeatedly refused to cooperate, despite numerous attempts to avoid going to court. These offers were "made over many months and through both written and personal communications," according to a Verizon filing, but have ultimately been "fruitless." The charges in question are said to be mainly for eastern states subject to tariffs filed with the FCC.

A spokesman for Sprint, John Taylor, counters that Verizon is merely trying to circumvent a two-year statute of limitations on collecting the money. The lawsuit is "simply a standard legal maneuver by Verizon to preserve their legal claim against us," Taylor argues. [via RCR Wireless News]
