Do Judges Have An Obligation To Hear Every Case?

August 1, 2008

This story:

The preliminary, tentative judgment orders Sprint Nextel to pay customers $18.2 million in reimbursements and, more importantly, orders Sprint to stop trying to collect another $54.7 million from California customers (some 2 million customers total) who have canceled their contracts but refused or failed to pay the termination fee.

is puzzling to me. What would happen if judges just refused to make a decision? If it so hard for Sprint to enforce the contracts they’ve made wouldn’t that be an incentive to change the way they sell their plans?
Wouldn’t a competitor jump on this opportunity?
