Sprint PCS Assets, L.L.C. v. Palos Verdes Estates, No. 05-56106

In an action under the Telecommunications Act of 1996 claiming that defendant-city improperly denied plaintiff permission to construct two wireless telecommunications facilities in the city's public rights of way, summary judgment for plaintiff is reversed where the city's denial was supported by substantial evidence, and disputed issues of material fact precluded a finding that the decision amounted to a prohibition on the provision of wireless service.
