Brief Description of Case Type: 
This case type involves formal complaints against common carriers under Section 208 of the Communications Act that are adjudicated on the Enforcement Bureau's Accelerated Docket. The Accelerated Docket adjudicates formal complaints on an expedited schedule. It is designed to lead to a written staff-level decision within 60 days from the filing of the complaint. Because the Accelerated Docket rules require staff-supervised pre-filing mediations, many disputes are settled without the need to file a formal complaint.
