FCC Mediating AT&T Redlining Complaint

Author: 

The Federal Communications Commission is attempting to mediate the broadband redlining complaint filed against AT&T by attorney Daryl Parks on behalf of "Cleveland broadband consumers," according to Parks, who says he is ready to talk, but also to sue. According to Parks' office, they are scheduled for a Nov. 13-14 session with AT&T and FCC staffers to try and resolve the complaint. "It is my sincere desire to resolve these matters during the November 13 - 14 FCC staff monitored mediation session," said Parks. "However, I am preparing to litigate and win on behalf of my clients and our communities."  To that end, Parks says he has employed several lawyers, including Andrew Jay Schwartzman of Georgetown University Law Center, a veteran public interest attorney specializing in communications access issues, saying while he hopes mediation is the ticket, "we are preparing to fight and win.
