Ok, who here believes that a "state tax court", operated by the state,
paid for by state _tax revenue_, is a disinterested party? Do I see a
single hand out there?

It will indeed be interesting to see what happens if the cellcos bring
a similar action in a federal court. I can see plenty of causes
(although I most assuredly wouldn't bet on any of them succeeding).

Disclosure: I'm not only a cellular customer, I also own stock in one
of the companies.
