Calling a lower court's decision flawed, The FCC has asked the Supreme Court to overturn the Janet Jackson Super Bowl halftime show decision.
The Third Circuit Court of Appeals in July threw out the FCC's $550,000 fine against CBS stations for the broadcast as arbitrary and capricious.
Apparently buoyed by the oral arguments in the Fox profanity appeal in the High Court earlier this month, the FCC, backed by the Department of Justice, filed a petition for a write of certiorari Wednesday, according to Andrew Schwartzman, president of Media Access Project, who received a copy of the petition.
Boob on the TV machine. Highest court in the land. The stupid. When will it end?
In the United States at the present day, the reverence which the Greeks gave to the oracles and the Middle Ages to the Pope is given to the Supreme Court.
