The Ontario Superior Court has put a lawsuit launched by Iristel Inc. against Telus Corp. on hold while the CRTC settles a related dispute. The court granted a temporary stay in a decision Monday, stating that \u201cthe court has no jurisdiction over, or is not the appropriate forum, for the subject matter of this action,\u201d which should be settled by the CRTC. Telus had requested the stay in the lawsuit brought forward by Iristel, asking for $135 million in withheld payments it said is owed to the company for terminating Telus\u2019 customer calls. The CRTC is currently in the process of making a decision in the long-standing dispute between the two companies. Telus is claiming Iristel is artificially stimulating traffic to its 867 numbers in the North for revenue by having radio station (call-to-listen) calls go to those numbers. Iristel accused Telus of choking their traffic to those 867 numbers, resulting in customers of both companies not being able to talk to each other. In a November interim decision, the CRTC ordered Telus to ensure the calls between the companies\u2019 customers are completed. The Ontario court decision noted that the two companies will be able to turn to the courts again once the CRTC issues its decision.
