  • This week, the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit found that the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC or Commission) current enforcement policy against indecent content in television and radio station broadcasts is unconstitutionally vague under the First Amendment. The decision in Fox Television Stations, Inc. v. FCC is the latest chapter in a long-running legal battle over the FCC’s indecency standard, which ultimately may be decided by the US Supreme Court. www.arnoldporter.com
