Supreme Court to hear ownership rules case.

What’s at stake here is the FCC’s authority to amend ownership rules. The Third Circuit Court of Appeals declined to reverse a lower court ruling stating that the FCC did not have the authority to make such changes, and now the Supreme Court has agreed to hear the case, which of course pleased the FCC chairman, who tweeted about the “great news”: “We hope the Court affirms the authority Congress gave us to amend ownership rules in the light of a media marketplace that’s changed dramatically since 1975 – especially with local news outlets struggling more than ever.”
