    I've not heard of anything...I would be interested in the answer to this
question as well.

    In reality, you should ask your lawyer that question. My understanding
(I haven't read the bulk of the Code, so take this with a grain of salt) is
that the Complaining Party has a certian amount of time to notify the
carrier/ISP of a violation. It might be worth while looking into setting up
your Radius log to rotate on the timeframe of that notification limit...
