23 Cal. 3d 638 (1979), 592 P.2d 289

Over Petitioner’s claims that his rights under various constitutional and statutory provisions were violated by GTE’s application of its Rule 31 (termination of service for unlawful use), the Court affirmed the Commission order terminating service to the subscriber.  The Court, inter alia, held that the Commission’s finding regarding the unlawful use of the telephone by Petitioner was not subject to review.  (But, see Phonetele, Para. 63.)  Today, that finding would be subject to a “substantial evidence” test pursuant to Section 1757(a)(4).
