Also, the FCC has denied CARMELO SANTIAGO ROMAN's application to take control of A RADIO COMPANY, INC., licensee of Spanish Religion WEGA-A/VEGA BAJA, PR, from GERALDO ANGULO pursuant to a court order and writ of attachment. "The Commission's long-standing policy is to accommodate the actions of state courts, thereby avoiding conflicts between state and federal authority, unless a public interest determination under the Act would compel a different result," the Commission wrote, adding, "the Order and Writ is facially inconsistent with the Commission's policy prohibiting attachment of a station license. Indeed, the Order and Writ specifically directs the attachment of the Station's license. In these circumstances, the Commission's general deference to state court orders is not warranted. We find that the Court's attachment of the Station's license exceeded its authority and to this extent the Order and Writ is void ab initio as violative of the Act and Commission policy."
