Judge Robert Gerber approved Adelphia’s bankruptcy plan Wed, finally ending the 54-month saga. In a 267-pg ruling, Gerber said that 84% of the claims were satisfied by the plan, and that most of the objections were baseless. — Time Warner Cable San Antonio countersued AT&T Wed, less than 4 weeks after the telco claimed the MSO’s techs deliberately damaged its network. "AT&T has engaged in conduct indistinguishable from that of which it accuses Time Warner Cable," the counterclaim said. The MSO also complains that the 2 had negotiated a process by which they could resolve claims amicably but that AT&T filed its suit without warning while those negotiations were in progress. TW also wants AT&T’s complaint to be dismissed. The MSO claims AT&T failed to properly cap cable drops in 83% of installations and interfered with Network Interface Devices in 73%. It also alleges that AT&T connected its wires to TW’s own outside wiring, breaking accepted business practices and creating a potential threat to public safety.
