Onvoy Inc., a telephone network operator accused of helping WorldCom Inc. avoid paying fees to competitors, said the former employee who made the allegations had been fired for poor performance. James Krutchen, whose charges have led to inquiries by the Justice Department and the Federal Communications Commission, was let go in a round of firings in January after four years with Onvoy, spokeswoman Kathryn Lovik said. "There was one job and we had two people," she said. "Because of his unsatisfactory performance, he was not considered for the post."

WorldCom Inc., seeking to exit bankruptcy protection in April, agreed Monday to give up $120 million in network fees owed by AT&T Corp. as part of a settlement of disputes that included charges of improper call routing. The rivals settled all claims against each other, including a racketeering and fraud lawsuit AT&T filed against WorldCom in Virginia last year, they said in a statement. The network fee agreement was revealed in a U.S. Bankruptcy Court filing.

AT&T Corp. on Tuesday sued rival telephone carriers WorldCom Inc. and Onvoy Inc. in federal court for alleged racketeering and fraud, charging the two companies with plotting to improperly route calls via Canada in a way that forced AT&T to pay hefty connection fees. WorldCom, which is in the process of changing its name to MCI, has been battling allegations about call routing for weeks. It has accused competitors of seeking to derail its plan to reorganize and emerge from bankruptcy protection.
