• On December 20, 2012, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) extended the statutory deadline to resolve a proceeding initiated by Level 3 Communications, LLC against AT&T California. The deadline was extended an additional twelve months to December 29, 2013. Level 3 filed a complaint against AT&T on December 29, 2010, alleging that AT&T was not abiding by the terms of the parties’ interconnection agreement (ICA), because it failed in some wire centers to provide cross-connects to other competitive local exchange carriers (CLECs) at Total Element Long-Run Incremental Cost (TELRIC) rates. Level 3 claimed that AT&T’s alleged practices violate the non-discrimination mandate in Section 251 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996. AT&T responded that its tariff, and not the ICA, controls and thus Level 3’s claims are barred by the filed tariff doctrine. AT&T also cross-claimed for the amounts that, it asserts, Level 3 has wrongfully withheld for the cross-connects AT&T did provide. Docket No. C1012018.
