STATE — The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has filed a federal breach of contract lawsuit against AT&T Corp. alleging that the telephone company has been over-billing the agency for over eight years.
During a 2011 communications audit, the Port Authority found that a circuit, which was supposed to connect a control tower at John F. Kennedy International Airport with a U.S. Coast Guard facility, was not operational. According to the lawsuit, the audit determined service had been provided over that circuit for at least six years even though AT&T billed the Port Authority more than $10,000 per month.
The suit also alleges that AT&T’s charges were significantly higher than the reasonable cost of the service.
