On May 24, 2012, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) dismissed with prejudice a complaint brought by AT&T California, Inc. against Fones4All Corp. in 2006. AT&T sought to recover alleged overcharges paid to Fones4All for termination of intraLATA toll traffic. Following an evidentiary hearing, the CPUC issued D.07-07-013, granting the relief AT&T requested in its complaint, or approximately $2.6 million, plus interest. After nearly two years, AT&T filed a motion with the CPUC stating that Fones4All failed to pay the judgment and that at least one Fones4All officer was improperly diverting assets for his personal use and to avoid paying AT&T. In 2008, however, the CPUC stayed the proceeding after Fones4All declared bankruptcy. AT&T is now pursuing a claim to pierce Fones4All’s corporate veil in the bankruptcy proceeding, and argued to the CPUC that administrative efficiency would be served by dismissing AT&T’s claims against Fones4All to allow AT&T to proceed in the bankruptcy case. Docket No. 06-03-013.
