ORDER ESTABLISHING NOTICE AND PUBLIC COMMENT
PROCEDURES FOR MOTION TO TERMINATE FINAL JUDGMENT

Plaintiff United States of America and Defendant AT&T Corporation ("AT&T," the successor in interest to Tele-Communications, Inc.) and Liberty Media Corporation ("Liberty") have moved this Court to establish procedures to terminate the Final Judgment entered by this Court on August 23, 1999. The United States has tentatively consented that the Final Judgment be terminated after a suitable period for public notice and comment. The parties have agreed that AT&T and Liberty will publish at their expense notice of the motion to terminate and the United States' provisional consent and that all interested persons will be given an opportunity to submit comments concerning the proposed termination of the Final Judgment. Because it appears to the Court desirable to invite such comments, and in consideration of the Stipulation of the parties dated _________, 2002, it is:

ORDERED that AT&T and Liberty shall publish at their own expense a notice in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A of the proposed termination of the Final Judgment in (a) two consecutive issues of The Wall Street Journal, and (b) two consecutive issues of Wireless Week, and file proof of such publication with the Court; and it is;

FURTHER ORDERED, that copies of all comments received by Plaintiff within sixty (60) days after the last publication of the notices required by this Order, together with the Plaintiff's response to those comments, shall be filed with this Court by Plaintiff within a reasonable period of time after the conclusion of the sixty (60) day comment period; and it is;

FURTHER ORDERED, that this Court will not rule upon the motion of the United States, AT&T and Liberty until at least the seventieth (70th) day after the last publication of the notices required by this Order.
