Court-Approves Class Action Settlements on Sprint, Qwest, Level 3, and WilTel Communications

Courts have granted preliminary approval for multiple class-action Settlements involving fiber-optic cable and related telecommunications equipment that has been installed in railroad Rights of Way. These Settlements resolve lawsuits in a number of states across the country, and will provide cash benefits to current and former owners of land next to or under the Rights of Way. Sprint, Qwest, Level 3, and WilTel Communications, the defendants, beginning in the mid-1980s, the companies or their predecessors buried fiber-optic cable and installed related telecommunications equipment within railroad Rights of Way nationwide. A railroad Right of Way is a strip of land on which a railroad company builds and operates a railroad. The defendants entered into agreements with the railroads that own and occupy the Rights of Way, and under those agreements paid the railroads for the rights to install the fiber-optic cable and related telecommunications equipment within the Rights of Way. Plaintiffs allege that, before installing the fiber-optic cable and related telecommunications equipment, the defendants also were required to obtain consent from those landowners who owned the land under the Rights of Way. The defendants contend that the railroads had the right to allow them to use the Rights of Way without the need for further permission from the adjoining landowners and deny any wrongdoing.
