In March 1997, the Commission established accounting rules that require carriers to account for adverse federal antitrust judgments and post-judgments special charges. To receive recognition of its avoided cost of litigation, a carrier must demonstrate, in a request for special relief, the avoided costs of litigation by showing the amount corresponding to the additional litigation expenses discounted to present value, that the carrier reasonably estimates it would have paid if it had not settled. A carrier requesting recovery of the avoided costs of litigation must accompany its request with clear and convincing evidence that, without the settlement, it would have incurred the expenses it estimates. The evidence will vary according to the circumstances.
