Overstating a position always carries a risk. The risk is that you might get called on it.
- There are a few more than 150 Iowa RLECs.
- AT&T is suing exactly five of them in court.
- Seven of the RLECs affected by AT&T's bully tactics have gotten together and counter-sued… for $10 million in lost revenues. That represents about 4 months of revenue.
So, what's the story Jim? Let me guess… you're playing nice with the other 140 or so companies that are really costing you over $200 million, 'cause the guys you've filed suit against sure aren't.
A lawyer would describe Jim's statements as "unsubstantiated". That's a polite way of saying "what a load of bull".
