Supreme Court Rules About F.C.C. s Right to Cancel Licenses. From the Wall Street Journal
Jan 28, 2003

Supreme Court, 8-1, ruled that Federal Communications Commission had no right to cancel valuable wireless communications licenses that bankrupt NextWave Telecom had won at auction and then could not pay for. The court said that while companies are reorganizing under bankruptcy protection, federal bankruptcy law protects them from dismemberment by regulatory agencies, just as law protects bankrupt companies from ordinary creditors.
