On behalf of West Orange, N.J., the Telecommunications Department of Shulman Rogers successfully negotiated a settlement of an 800 MHz licensing dispute between West Orange and the New York City Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications. To implement that settlement agreement, Shulman Rogers has now obtained a waiver of the FCC’s construction rules on West Orange’s behalf.

“It has always been our goal at Shulman Rogers to find our clients the most efficient and least costly methodology to settle disputes,” said Shulman Rogers Telecommunications Department Chair Alan Tilles. “We believe that our conception of this settlement served all parties, and was preferred to years of costly litigation.”

In granting the Waiver Request, the FCC acknowledged that grant of the waiver would “avoid prolonging this proceeding and imposing additional costs on the Parties.”
