Courts Grants Preliminary Approval for Class-Action Settlement in the Lawsuit Files Against Sprint, Qwest, Level 3, and WilTel Communications

The following class-action Settlement is being announced by Court-approved Notice-program designer, Kinsella Media LLC: Courts have granted preliminary approval for a class-action Settlement involving fiber-optic cable and related telecommunications equipment that has been installed in railroad Rights of Way. This Settlement resolves a lawsuit in Texas, and will provide cash benefits to current and former owners of land next to or under the Rights of Way. Sprint, Qwest, Level 3, and WilTel Communications, the Defendants, are telecommunications companies. Plaintiffs allege that, before installing the fiber-optic cable and related telecommunications equipment, the Defendants also were required to obtain consent from those landowners who owned the land under the Rights of Way. The Defendants contend that the railroads had the right to allow them to use the Rights of Way without the need for further permission from the adjoining landowners and deny any wrongdoing. Class Members include current or previous owners of land next to or under a railroad Right of Way, at any time since the cable was installed in the state of Texas.
