U.S. Supreme Court Upholds FCC Shot Clock

Just released this morning is the U.S. Supreme Court decision that, on a 6-3 vote, upholds the FCC Shot Clock.

The decision is linked below.

“SCALIA, J., delivered the opinion of the Court, in which THOMAS, GINSBURG, SOTOMAYOR, and KAGAN, JJ., joined. BREYER, J., filed an opinion concurring in part and concurring in the judgment. ROBERTS, C. J., filed a dissenting opinion, in which KENNEDY and ALITO, JJ., joined.”

Many will offer their view of the decision, which is essentially a reaffirmation of the Chevron Deference rule.  For now, I’ll leave it to you, the readers, to reach your own conclusions.

What we know, now, is that the FCC Shot Clock is here to stay.

What we expect now is that the FCC will move to a rulemaking or declaratory ruling regarding Section 6409(a) [47 U.S.C 1455(a)]
