October 23, 2013 at 3:37 PM (PT)
FCC General Counsel SEAN LEV is leaving the agency at the end of the year, the Commission announced TODAY (10/23).
Acting FCC Chairwoman MIGNON CLYBURN said,"SEAN LEV has been an outstanding General Counsel for the Federal Communications Commission and the American people. He has led the Office of General Counsel in support of critical agency initiatives that have benefited consumers, competition, and the public interest across the country. SEAN's legal counsel and leadership have been critical to ensuring that the Commission's decisions on a range of challenging issues have been legally sound. His broad legal experience and unique insight have been invaluable to the Commission; they have furthered the agency's public service mission for the mobile broadband era and have bolstered the agency's reform efforts.
"Among other notable accomplishments, SEAN has spearheaded the agency's defense of the Open Internet rules; he has worked extensively on defending the Commission's landmark Universal Service/Intercarrier Compensation Transformation Order, and he has led the Office of General Counsel to major victories in the D.C. Circuit on the Commission's data roaming rules, and in the SUPREME COURT on the `shot clock' rules for wireless facilities siting applications. I thank SEAN for his fine work and his dedicated public service."
