SURFACE TRANSPORTATION BOARD
Docket No. NOR 42125
E.I. DUPONT DE NEMOURS AND COMPANY
Decided: August 25, 2011
This decision grants a motion to modify the procedural schedule filed by E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company (DuPont).
By decision served on February 24,
2011, the Board established a procedural schedule for DuPont’s challenge to the
reasonableness of rates established by Norfolk Southern Railway Company (NSR). On
NSR has since produced the requested traffic data, and on August 9, 2011, DuPont filed another motion to modify the procedural schedule in light of this development. DuPont’s proposed schedule would adjust the due dates in the current schedule by approximately three months in order to account for the three-month delay in production of the requested traffic data. Specifically, DuPont requests that the Board adopt the following modified procedural schedule:
Joint Submission of Operating Characteristics
Complainant’s Opening January 31, 2012
DuPont states that it has been authorized to represent that NSR does not oppose the motion.
DuPont’s unopposed motion to modify the procedural schedule, filed on August 9, 2011, will be granted. The procedural schedule in this proceeding will be revised as described above.
The parties’ filings must be compatible with the Board’s current computing environment Windows 7, Office 10, and 64 bit processing. Anything incompatible with that configuration cannot be accepted and may be rejected under 49 C.F.R. § 1104.10.
This action will not significantly affect either the quality of the human environment or the conservation of energy resources.
It is ordered:
1. DuPont’s motion to modify the procedural schedule, filed on August 9, 2011, is granted. The procedural schedule in this proceeding is revised as described above.
2. DuPont’s motion to modify the procedural schedule, filed on June 30, 2011, is denied as moot.
3. This decision is effective on its service date.
By the Board, Joseph H. Dettmar, Acting Director, Office of Proceedings.
