JAWA, a Scottsdale company founded by Jason Hope and one of the fastest-growing companies in the Southwest, released the following statement regarding today's decision by the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona to deny a temporary restraining order to restore the company's access to the Verizon Wireless network and subscribers - and continue to operate.
"We are outraged by today's District Court action that allows Verizon Wireless to continue to abuse its dominant market position and force out smaller competitors who provide valuable mobile content to customers. It is a blatant attempt to monopolize content. We will continue to aggressively fight for our rights and hope to resolve this matter quickly. JAWA employs more than 240 people, all of whom live in the Scottsdale, Arizona area. We take great pride in our work and want nothing more than to get back to delivering superior service to our customers."
