Moot Court Event - Sprint v. Jacobs

Wednesday, October 23, 2013 • 12:15 PM • Law School 3041Duke Law Events

Tim Simeone, of Wiltshire & Grannis LLP in Washington DC, will offer argument in the case of Sprint Communications Company v. Jacobs, et al, which is set to be argued in the United Supreme Court on November 5, 2013. The case presents the issue whether the Eighth Circuit properly abstained under Younger v. Harris from entertaining Sprint's challenge to a decision of the Iowa Utility Board, which decision rested on a disputed interpretation of a Federal statute and ruled that Sprint owes access charges to an Iowa intrastate carrier on certain types of calls.
