The FCC’s 1st decision finding that an operator violated program carriage rules has been thrown out by the DC Circuit Court of Appeals. In an opinion released Tues, the court ruled unanimously that the Commission didn’t provide evidence that Comcast discriminated against Tennis on the basis of affiliation. The court will issue its mandate in the coming weeks, with many expecting it to vacate the FCC’s order. The FCC offered no comment, but Tennis Channel did. More on the panel’s decision here.
