Editorial #49-CSDVRS (ZVRS) Files Letter and Ex Parte to FCC Refuting Sorenson's Assertions

CSDVRS has filed a letter and met with the FCC in an attempt to refute Sorenson’s assertions in their recent filings and ex parte meetings with the FCC. Sorenson has met with the FCC a number of times very recently with several lawyers, one from a high-powered law firm (Skadden, Arps) and 2 from their usual law firm (Lawler, Metzger) and their in-house counsel.

CSDVRS asserts that the tiered structure has worked very well in the past few years, countering Sorenson’s argument that multiple tiers are “inequitable.” CSDVRS also disputes Sorenson’s assertion that servicing debt is a standard function of doing business, only because they are using this debt to reward their investors, and not to offer better services to deaf and hard of hearing people, among other things.

You can read CSDVRS‘s letter at the following link, along with their ex-parte filing at this link.

The following lists the links to Sorenson‘s ex parte filings and other filings for the recent week or so:

link Ex Parte #1 (6/9/10)
link Ex Parte #2 from Sorenson’s Investor (Madison Dearborn Partners) (6/8/10)
link Ex Parte #3 (6/4/10)
link Ex Parte #4 (6/4/10)
link Application for Review (6/4/10)
link Ex Parte #5 (6/3/10)
link Ex Parte #6 (6/2/10)
link Ex Parte #7 (5/26/10)

Dr. Z is choosing not to comment on the ex parte filings by Sorenson. They are quite self-explanatory.

Dr. Z cares about your communication access and how public monies are being spent.
