Notice is hereby given that the Administrative Law Judge has completed a preliminary review of the Petitions in Dockets 05-0787, 05-0789 and 05-0790, filed by various Sprint entities and C-R telephone Co., Odin Telephone Exchange Inc., and Yates City Telephone Co., respectively, and directs the parties to show cause why these petitions should not be dismissed for failure to be certificated by this Commission to operate as telecommunications carriers, as is required by Sections 13-403, 13-404 and 13-405 of the Public Utilities Act. The Administrative Law Judge notes that in the Joint Petitions, several Sprint entities are listed as Petitioners, however, it appears that only one of those Sprint entities has a current certificate from this Commission to act as a telecommunications carrier.
The parties are directed to, on or before January 6 2005, either file and serve an amended petition with the correct names of the parties (the name or names on current ICC certificates of service authority), or to file and serve a verified response to this Rule to Show Cause Order, stating why the Sprint entities in the interconnection agreements are not currently certificated by this Commission. Attached to this verified response must be all pertinent documents, including, if relevant, any documents issued by the Ill. Secretary of State.
To and including December 16, 2005, the parties are given leave to file an amended Petition. Failure or untimely response to this ruling could result in dismissal.
A hearing will convene on these dockets on January 10, 2006 at 1:00 pm.
