The FCC will now allow parties to file pleadings using the online Consolidated DataBase System (CDBS).
Informal Objections, Petitions to Deny, Petitions for Reconsideration, Applications for Review, Replies, Oppositions, and Supplements can now be filed directly online at the FCC wehsite. The CDBS can be used only for filings pertaining to broadcast applications but not for docketed proceedings like comments. Pleadings filed electronically will generally show up in the public access area the first business day after filing under the "View Legal Actions" link under each application listed on the Application Search Results screen.
