Southern New England Tel. Co. v. Global Naps Inc., No. 08-4518

By FindLaw Staff on August 30, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Southern New England Tel. Co. v. Global Naps Inc., No. 08-4518, involved an action by a telephone company seeking payment for services rendered pursuant to its federal tariff.  The court affirmed summary judgment for plaintiff, a civil contempt order entered against defendant, and a default judgment entered against defendants for failure to comply with discovery orders, holding that 1) the Telecommunications Act did not divest the federal courts of subject matter jurisdiction over claims seeking the enforcement of a federally filed tariff whenever adjudication of the claims required the interpretation of an interconnection agreement between telecommunications carriers; and 2) the district court did not abuse its discretion in imposing the discovery sanctions it did.
