52. For the reasons described above, we hold that YMax has violated sections 203(c) and
201(b) regarding all of the switched access charges in dispute. In particular, YMax's Tariff does not
authorize any of the switched access charges in dispute, because the Called/Calling Parties are not "End
Users" as defined by the Tariff. In addition, the Tariff does not authorize either of the two categories of
switched access charges in dispute - End Office Switching and Switched Transport - because YMax
provides no "termination" of "End User station loops" and "end user lines," as its Tariff requires.
Accordingly, we grant Counts IIlI and IV of AT&T's Complaint.
53. Finally, our finding that YMlax's charges to AT&T are unlawful under sections 203 and
201(b) of the Act will afford AT&T all the relief to which it is entitled. We therefore need not, and do
not, reach the claims stated in the remaining counts of the Complaint.47 Accordingly, we dismiss these
counts without prejudice.

147 AT&T stated that a decision that YMax has violated the terms of its Tariff would obviate the need to decide
AT&T's other claims against YMax. See. e.g., Reply Legal Analysis at 9 (asserting that "the Complaint can be
decided on the ground that YMAX has violated its tariffs (and hence sections 203 and 201(b) of the
Communications Act) by assessing charges that are not authorized by its tariff" and that the "issues under the
Commission's CLEC access charge orders and rules, the Commission's Computer Inquiry rules, and section 201(b)
of the Communications Act are relevant only if YMax's tariffs actually authorized the access charges that YMax has
assessed") (emphasis in original).
