The U.S. Supreme Court released the oral argument in FOX Television v FCC, a broadcast indecency case. The high court met on Tuesday, Jan. 10, to review a 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals decision that found the FCC's indecency rules unconstitutionally vague.
The case stems from the use of expletives by actresses Cher and Nicole Richie during the 2002 Billboard Music Awards, which aired on Fox.
This is the second time that the justices have heard the case. In an earlier decision, they ruled in favor of the FCC's decency rules, but referred the case back to the lower court to decide on the constitutionality of the FCC's guidelines that limit foul language and nudity on the network airwaves.
