Viasat, Inc. v. FCC, No. 21-1123 (D.C. Cir. 2022)Annotate this Case
The Federal Communications Commission approved a request by Space Exploration Holdings, LLC to fly its satellites at a lower altitude.
The D.C. Circuit rejected the merits of a competitor's claim that the FCC did not adequately consider the risk of signal interference. The D.C. Circuit also declined to review a claim brought by another competitor and an environmental group because the competitor's asserted injury did not fall within the zone of interests protected by the NEPA and the environmental group lacked standing.
