Those harsh words are the rebuttal by Verizon to AT&T’s lawsuit that was seeking to stop those now infamous “Map for that” ads (below).  As Engadget says, those words were made for the public forum not just some 50 page rebuttal (PDF).  Incredibly, Verizon says in the introduction:

AT&T did not file this lawsuit because Verizon’s “There’s A Map For That” advertisements are untrue; AT&T sued because Verizon’s ads are true and the truth hurts.


Verizon also called AT&T CEO Randall Stevenson a hick and made fun of Wireless CEO, Ralph de la Vega’s hair plugs.  They concluded that AT&T’s orange and blue colors were dumb and clashed with each other.
