The article reports that the Carlsbad, California municipality is suing Time Warner Cable for allegedly occupying city rights of way without a franchise. According to Carlsbad, Time Warner's operation is illegal because the Adelphia franchise it inherited has expired and the law prevents the company from obtaining operating authority from the state until January 2008.
