Sec. 76.954  Initial review of complaint; minimum showing requirement; 
          dismissal of defective complaints.

    (a) The Commission will conduct an initial review of a complaint to 
determine if it meets the minimum showing required to allow the 
complaint to go forward. The minimum showing shall be satisfied if the 
complaint is filed using the standard complaint form described in 
Sec. 76.951 and includes all information and attachments required by 
that form. A complainant will not be required, as part of the minimum 
showing, to provide the underlying information and calculations 
necessary to judge the cable programming service rate in question 
against the Commission's rate standards.
    (b) A complaint that does not meet the minimum showing requirement 
described in paragraph (a) of this section will be considered defective. 
A defective complaint will be dismissed without prejudice to filing a 
corrected complaint as provided by Sec. 76.955. The Commission will 
notify the complainant by mail of the dismissal. The filing of a 
complaint on the applicable form, but which is otherwise defective, will 
toll the limitation period established by Sec. 76.953.
