American Library Ass'n v. Federal Communications Comm'n, 406 F.3d 689, 692 (D.C. Cir. 2005) (full-text).

Appellate Court Proceedings Edit

The appellate court held that:

The Commission . . . may exercise ancillary jurisdiction only when two conditions are satisfied: (1) the Commission's general jurisdictional grant under Title I [of the Communications Act] covers the regulated subject and (2) the regulations are reasonably ancillary to the Commission's effective performance of its statutorily-mandated responsibilities.[1]
