The petitions of the day are:

17-627

Issues: (1) Whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit erred by rejecting the Federal Communications Commission’s determination that failure to pay a tariffed charge is not a violation of the Communications Act—which would have the effect of turning the FCC into a “collection agency” contrary to the FCC’s view of its proper role; and (2) whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit erred by rejecting the FCC’s determination that it has exclusive jurisdiction over “information services,” instead holding that states may regulate intrastate information services.

17-628

Issue: Whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit erred by rejecting the Federal Communications Commission’s determination that it has exclusive jurisdiction over “information services,” instead holding that states may regulate intrastate information services.
