ADDENDUM TO THE AGENDA
1. CT00-065 IN THE MATTER OF THE COMPLAINT FILED BY VESTA JENSEN, BROOKINGS, SOUTH DAKOTA, AGAINST GLOBAL CROSSING TELECOMMUNICATIONS, INC., FORMERLY ALLNET COMMUNICATION SERVICES, INC. D/B/A FRONTIER COMMUNICATIONS SERVICES AND TELTRUST COMMUNICATIONS SERVICES, INC. D/B/A TELTRUST AND D/B/A TCS REGARDING UNAUTHORIZED SWITCHING OF SERVICES. (Staff Analyst: Leni Healy. Staff Attorney: Karen Cremer.)
On April 25, 2000, the Commission docketed the complaint filed by Vesta Jensen, Brookings, South Dakota, against Global Crossing Telecommunications, Inc., formerly Allnet Communication Services, Inc. d/b/a Frontier Communications Services and Teltrust Communications Services, Inc. d/b/a Teltrust and d/b/a TCS regarding unauthorized switching of services. The Complainant states that her out-of-state long distance service was switched without authorization on February 24, 2000. She requests that "the Public Utilities Commission should enforce the stiffest fines and penalties to stop the long distance phone companies from changing anyone's service without permission." On May 5, 2000, Global Crossing Telecommunications, Inc. filed a Motion for Removal from Complaint. That matter was deferred at the May 17, 2000, regular meeting. A hearing was scheduled for July 12, 2000. On the afternoon of June 29, 2000, Global Crossing filed a Motion for Continuance and Request that Commission Join DSI/INN-TEL as a Party Respondent. At the July 6, 2000, Ad Hoc meeting, the Commission granted the Motion for Continuance.
TODAY, shall the Commission grant Global Crossing Telecommunications, Inc.'s Motion to Join DSI/INN-TEL as a Party Respondent?
