Judge Defies FCC


For the first time in several years, a federal judge has denied the FCC an injunction to shut down an unlicensed radio station. The outlet in question is Vermont's radio free brattleboro; this new development hasn't legalized it, but it does allow the station to keep broadcasting until the judge rules on its constitutional arguments.

This comes just two weeks after a local initiative supporting the station passed by a vote of 1,519 to 780.
