Sprint to pay $15.5 million to settle DOJ wiretap overcharging case

Written By kolimtiga on Jumat, 10 April 2015 | 12.56

Sprint on Thursday agreed to pay the government $15.5 million to resolve allegations that it overcharged for carrying out court ordered wiretaps, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

The telecommunications company did not admit any wrong concerning the accusations that it hid charges for certain upgrades to its system in the government's wiretap service bills froom 2007 to 2010, according to a news release from the Justice Department Northern District of California.

Telecommunications carriers are allowed to bill law enforcement agencies for the reasonable expenses incurred for the wiretap service, but those expenses cannot include costs to "upgrade their equipment, facilities, or services to ensure they were capable of enabling the government, pursuant to a court order, to intercept and deliver communications and call-identifying information," according to the news release.

The Federal Communications Commission prohibited carriers from passing along those upgrades in 2006.
