Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit - 240 F.2d 33 (D.C. Cir. 1956) Argued December 7, 1956
Decided December 27, 1956

Mr. Vernon L. Wilkinson, Washington, D. C., with whom Mr. James A. McKenna, Jr., Washington, D. C., was on the brief, for appellant.

Mr. Richard A. Solomon, Assistant General Counsel, Federal Communications Commission, with whom Mr. Warren E. Baker, General Counsel, Federal Communications Commission, was on the brief, for appellee. Mr. Daniel R. Ohlbaum, Counsel, Federal Communications Commission, also entered an appearance for appellee.

Mr. Abe L. Stein, Washington, D. C., entered an appearance for intervenor Dorsey Eugene Newman.

Before EDGERTON, Chief Judge, and DANAHER and BASTIAN, Circuit Judges.


This appeal is from the Federal Communications Commission's decision of January 1956, granting intervenor's application for a broadcasting license in Hartselle, Alabama, and denying appellant's mutually exclusive application to increase the power of Station WERD, in Atlanta, Georgia, from 1,000 to 10,000 watts. We think the record supports the Commission's action.
