Cable, Telecommunications, and Technology Committee of the New Orleans City Council, v. Federal Communications Commission

Docket No., 11-1547

Arguement Date: Wednesday, January 16, 2013


1. Should Chevron deference be afforded to an administrative agency's interpretation of its own statutory jurisdiction?

2. If it is determined that an agency's interpretation of its own statutory jurisdiction should be evaluated under Chevron, did the Fifth Circuit improperly apply Chevron?

3. Did the FCC usurp the jurisdiction and authority reserved for State and local governments by Congress in its interpretation of 47 U.S.C.A. § 332 (C)(7) by creating additional limitations on state and local governments beyond those provided for in the statute?
