GTT Communications, Inc. filed a civil complaint against Artel, LLC on June 15, 2012 in the Fairfax County Virginia Circuit Court, docket number CL2012-04735, alleging breach of contract with respect to telecommunication services. In response to the complaint, Artel, LLC filed a counterclaim based on allegations of breach of contract and certain business torts. On December 20, 2013, the court entered a judgment against GTT Communications, Inc. in the amount of $3.3 million. The court suspended the judgment, subject to a letter of credit during the appeal to the Supreme Court of Virginia.
