From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Court Rules Against Caller I.D.: Bell of Pennsylvania’s caller-identification service is an invasion of privacy and violates the state’s wiretap law, a state court ruled. The decision reverses an order by the state Public Utility Commission allowing Bell to offer the service. The service would let people to know who is calling before they pick up the phone, even if the caller’s number is unlisted. Several other regional phone companies already offer the service.
