FCC Now Permits Electronic Filing of Pleadings


The Media Bureau has added a new feature to the Consolidated DataBase System (CDBS).  Parties may now file the following pleadings electronically: informal objections, petitions to deny, petitions for reconsideration, applications for review, replies, oppositions and supplements. The commission says, "this new feature will make electronically filed pleadings promptly available to licensees, interested parties and the general public, thereby increasing the transparency of the broadcast licensing processes."

For more information about electronic submission of pleadings, see the CDBS Informal Filings FAQ page:
