The Postal Service’s motion to dismiss is denied. This should not, however, be read as a finding on the merits on the jurisdictional question presented. The pleadings raise mixed questions of fact and law. Based solely on the pleadings, the Commission is disinclined to determine whether or not genuine issues of material fact remain in dispute. Accordingly, by this order the Commission hereby notices the proceeding and, as discussed below, provides interested persons an opportunity to address whether or not genuine issues of material fact remain to be presented in this case. Following submission of responsive pleadings, the Commission will determine whether to proceed with or without hearing. If no genuine material issue of fact is presented, the Commission will establish a briefing schedule affording participants an opportunity to address the principal legal issue whether or not stamped stationery is a postal service. Order and Notice of Proceeding I. Background Postal Rate Commission. ACTION: Order denying motion to dismiss and notice of proceeding. The Complaint. In his Complaint, filed pursuant to 39 U.S.C. 3662, Carlson contends that stamped stationery is a postal service subject to the Commission’s jurisdiction. The specific stationery in question consists of sheets of 6.25″ x 14.31″ paper imprinted with ‘‘The Art of Disney: Friendship’’ postage stamps or indicia. Each pre-stamped sheet has room for a message and address; the sheet is designed to be folded, sealed, and mailed.3 While Carlson makes several claims, the gravamen of his complaint is that stamped stationery is a postal service within the meaning of 39 U.S.C. 3621, 3622, and 3623. Id. at 2, para. 10. In support, he compares stamped stationery to stamped envelopes and stamped cards, both of which are postal services. Id. at 3, paras. 14–15. He observes that section 960 of the Domestic Mail Classification Schedule (DMCS) is entitled ‘‘Stamped Paper’’ and that it includes stamped envelopes and stamped cards. Ibid. paras. 16–17. He contends that stamped stationery is a form of stamped paper within the meaning of section 960 of the DMCS. Ibid. para. 21. In addition, Carlson notes that the Postal Service describes AGENCY: SUMMARY: This document announces the Commission’s decision to institute a formal proceeding to consider issues raised in a complaint concerning stamped stationery. Conducting this proceeding will allow the Commission to determine whether the complaint raises any genuine issues of material fact and to make related determinations. DATES: 1. Deadline for filing issue statements and notices of intervention: April 27, 2006. 2. Deadline for filing replies to issue statements: May 4, 2006. ADDRESSES: File all documents referred to in this order electronically via the Commission’s Filing Online system at http://www.prc.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Stephen L. Sharfman, 202–789–6820. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission has before it a complaint filed by Douglas F. Carlson (Carlson or Complainant) concerning stamped stationery 1 and a motion to dismiss the complaint filed by the Postal Service.2 The central issue presented by these pleadings is whether stamped stationery is a postal or philatelic product.
