Court Orders ExciteAtHome to Shut Service
SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A federal bankruptcy judge ordered Internet

high-speed Internet service at midnight Friday, but said he was
confident the company could quickly strike a new deal with cable companies to
prevent service interruption for its some 4 million subscribers.
