United States v. Zenith Radio Corp., 12 F.2d 614 (N.D. Ill. 1926) (full-text).

District Court Proceedings Edit

The court held that the Radio Act of 1912 did not permit the Secretary of Commerce to refuse a radio license.

Commentary Edit

The decision led to an 8­-month period of chaos, with multiple radio signals being transmitted on the same frequencies, so that no one could be heard. This led to the passage of the Radio Act of 1927.
