Statement of AG Bob Ferguson on UTC’s CenturyLink 911 Outage Penalty
“I’m deeply disappointed the UTC has accepted this inadequate settlement. CenturyLink’s error denied 911 service to millions of Washingtonians.
“I strongly disagree with the UTC that this resolution is in the public interest.If this failure does not warrant a maximum penalty, I find it hard to imagine what circumstances would.
“Bottom line – CenturyLink is getting off with a slap on the wrist.”
