WSJ Applauds FCC Chairman Pai, Commissioner Carr in Support of T-Mobile/Sprint Merger

Echoing CFIF, today's Wall Street Journal board editorial applauds Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai's and Commissioner Brendan Carr's expressions of support for the proposed T-Mobile/Sprint merger:

By joining forces, T-Mobile and Sprint will be better positioned to compete against wireless leaders Verizon and AT&T in the 5G era.   Sprint is sitting on loads of mid-band spectrum that boosts wireless speeds while T-Mobile boasts ample low-band spectrum that provides coverage.  The combination is likely to provide a faster, denser network."

As they rightly conclude, "government penalties pale next to the powerful market incentives that already exist for Sprint and T-Mobile to rapidly build out their networks lest they lose market share to Verizon, AT&T, cable…[more]

Thursday, November 29 2012

A Chicago (IL) woman is suing the City of Chicago, United Airlines and her ex-boyfriend after being levied more than $105,000 in parking fees.

Jennifer Fitzgerald claims she doesn't owe a dime for the parking tickets incurred by her ex-boyfriend on a vehicle he abandoned at O'Hare International Airport three years ago. According to her lawsuit, she doesn't believe she is responsible for the 678 parking-related tickets and she is contesting the fees.

Fitzgerald claims that her ex-boyfriend, Brandon Preveau, bought the car from her uncle and, without her knowledge, put her name on the registration.  She said he then drove the car to the airport to board a plane (he worked for United Airlines), abandoning the car in the parking lot.  She further claims she did not have keys and Preveau refused to move the vehicle after she started receiving notices from the Department of Revenue about the fines.  Fitzgerald is suing the City of Chicago to contest the fees on grounds that she was not the vehicle's true owner. She also claims that under the City's laws, the car should have been towed a long time ago.  

“If they (police) go back and look at the law, I think they'll realize that they’re the ones who made the biggest mistake and should really in my opinion let this young woman off the hook for the vast majority of these tickets,” Mike Brockway, who runs the blog The Expired Meter, told local news reporters.
