Needs and Uses: In CC Docket No. 93-240, the Commission considers the issue of the accounting rules and ratemaking policies that should apply to litigation costs incurred by carriers subject to Part 32 of its rules and regulations. The Commission determined that there should be special rules to govern the accounting treatment of federal antitrust judgements and settlements, in excess of avoided costs of litigation, but not for litigation expenses. The Commission concluded that these special rules should not apply to costs arising in other kinds of litigation. To receive recognition of its avoided costs of litigation, a carrier must make a demonstration.
