Petition for Reconsideration


Adopted: September 16, 2011

Released: September 19, 2011

By the Deputy Chief, Mobility Division, Wireless Telecommunications Bureau:
1. Warren C. Havens and related parties (Petitioners) seek reconsideration of the dismissal of
their petition to deny the above-captioned assignment application.1 The petition to deny was dismissed as
moot after the proposed assignor withdrew the application.2 Petitioners believe that the matter is not
moot because they raised broader issues in their pleadings. We disagree. Petitioners have received all the
relief that they can with respect to the above-captioned application. Because we are under no obligation
to resolve unnecessary issues, we conclude that the petition to deny was properly dismissed as moot.3
2. Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED pursuant to Sections 4(i) and 405 of the Communications Act
of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 154(i) and 405(a), and Section 1.106 of the Commission's Rules, 47
C.F.R. 1.106, that the Petition for Reconsideration filed by Warren C. Havens, Environmentel LLC,
Intelligent Transportation & Monitoring Wireless, LLC, Verde Systems LLC, VTG LLC, Telesaurus
Holdings GB LLC, and Skybridge Spectrum Foundation on June 27, 2011 IS DENIED.
3. This action is taken under delegated authority pursuant to Sections 0.131 and 0.331 of the
Commission's Rules, 47 C.F.R. 0.131, 0.331.
