Short Take: Ameritech anti-slamming program thrown out

A Michigan court ruled today that an Ameritech anti-slamming program went too far, failing to process genuine customer orders to switch phone providers. Slamming is the switching of telephone service providers without a customer's permission. The suit was brought by MCI Worldcom, who said Ameritech had ignored many of its verified requests for service changes.
