VERIZON MARYLAND INC. v. PUB. UTIL. COMM'N OF MARYLAND, 00-1531

Jurisdiction is found under 28 U.S.C. section 1331, for a local-exchange carrier's claim that a state public utility commission's order, requiring reciprocal compensation for ISP-bound calls, is pre-empted by federal law; suit against commissioners in their individual capacities is not barred by Ex Parte Young, 209 U.S. 123, where no past liability of the state or its commissioners is at issue.
