RM-9208 PETITIONERS ASK FCC FOR SUSPENSION OF PROSECUTIONS

by Don Schellhardt

The RM-9208 Petitioners (Nick Leggett, Judith Leggett and Don Schellhardt) ask the Federal Communications Commission for a suspension of microbroadcasting prosecutions.

EXCERPTS FROM THE LEGGETT/SCHELLHARDT SPECIAL COMMENTS

We ask the Commission to take the following steps:

1. Suspend all ongoing microbroadcasting prosecutions until such time as the Commission has: (a) adopted a final rule which legalizes some or all microbroadcasting stations; OR (b) decided and announced that it will not legalize any such stations.

In other words, all ongoing prosecutions would be suspended while the Commission’s current reconsideration of its microbroadcasting policy is in progress. Read More
