I received a document with an attached "exhibit 1" in december listing my 
genuity service contract which was for "contracts to be assumed and assigned to 

.. some others have since come but i've not had the one you mention. perhaps its

from what i can see all genuity staff are either gone or assimilated, i think 
you would be best

I received a mountain of court documents yesterday from the US 
Bankruptcy Court, Southern District of New York... which, if my 
interpretation of the legalese is correct says that Level 3 has asked 
the court to reject certain contracts of Genuity's.. including ours, 
as of February 25th, 2003.

My calls to various Genuity contacts are finding nothing but polite 
receptionists who tell me who "is no longer working for the company" 
and direct me to various voicemail boxes of account reps who seem to 
be universally out for the week. It looks like I might have until 
next Tuesday to buy a new DS3 circuit from somebody else... but it 
would be nice to know if that is true before I scramble in that 

"Exhibit A" lists the companies & contracts being "rejected" and I 
suspect from the list that perhaps a few others here on nanog have 
received the same pile of court documents I did.

My questions are:

1. Is my guess that our Genuity connection will go dark on Feb 25 correct?
2. Can somebody from either Genuity or L3 clue me in (offlist) to the 
whys, whens and hows here? If I have a less than a week to scramble 
up another cicuit I need all the lead time I can get.
