Global NAPs Cal., Inc. v. Pub. Util. Comm'n of Cal., 09-55600

In a petition for review of the California Public Utilities Commission's (CPUC) order requiring it to pay Cox California Telcom, LLC in accordance with an interconnection agreement and the CPUC’s order suspending petitioner's right to operate as a telecommunications provider in California, the denial of the petition is affirmed where: 1) the CPUC’s characterization of petitioner's VoIP traffic as intraLATA toll traffic came from Global itself; 2) a fact hearing was unnecessary to determine whether petitioner's VoIP traffic fell within the agreement's intraLATA-toll-call provision; and 3) the CPUC did not require petitioner to pay any compensation under the federal access-charges regime.
