Justice Department Sues Fox Over Indecency Fines
April 7, 2008 at 5:51 AM (PT)
The JUSTICE DEPARTMENT has filed suit against FOX BROADCASTING CO. and SINCLAIR BROADCAST GROUP to collect $56,000 in indecency fines over the TV show "MARRIED BY AMERICA."
FOX and SINCLAIR had refused to pay the fines because the decision was, in their determination, arbitrary and capricious and unconstitutional. The FOX appeal was returned THURSDAY by the FCC because it exceeded the Commission's page limit, and the DOJ filed the suits against five FOX stations and three SINCLAIR stations on FRIDAY.
