Even though it's in your yard, it's still technically ATT'S part of the network.
Is lawn aeration considered "digging" in the context of cable locating laws?
What would have happened if the homeowner had called AT&T and said, "Your cable is less than three inches below my lawn and I need to do some lawn maintenance. I want you to move the line deeper into the ground." ?
AT&T could argue that the homeowner or contractor should have called to have the cables marked.
On the other hand, the homeowner could argue that the burial depth was unreasonable and would have prevented him from doing routine lawn maintenance.--
