Federal Communications Commission v. Fox Television Stations, Inc.
SUPREME COURT CASES RELATED BY THIS ISSUE
Whether the Federal Communication current indecency-enforcement regime violates the First or Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution
Because the Commission failed to give Fox or ABC fair notice prior to the broadcasts in question that fleeting expletives and momentary nudity could be found actionably indecent, the Commission’s standards as applied to these broadcasts were vague.
Justices in Majority
Cert. granted on 6/27/11. Decided 6/21/12.
