Judicial Watch sues FCC over DTV delay documents

Print More

A self-described conservative watchdog group is suing the FCC to release documents related to the delayed DTV transition. Judicial Watch’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit in U.S. District Court for District of Columbia says an adviser to President Barack Obama stood to benefit from the delay, which slowed up Verizon’s new broadband network to compete with Clearwire. The lawsuit also alleges that documents the FCC did provide to the group were highly redacted, and other documents were withheld.
