FCC Suspends Ex Parte Rules for Super Bowl Investigation
The FCC says it will suspend ex parte rules in its indecency investigation of the Super Bowl broadcast in which Janet Jackson flashed a breast.

The Commission said "of the over 200,000 complaints received to date, a small number of the complainants served their complaints on CBS. Although such service would ordinarily require the treatment of the investigation as a restricted proceeding, in light of the total number of complainants, such a reclassification of the proceeding would not serve the public interest.

"Accordingly, we will continue to treat this matter as not subject to the ex parte rules until such time as further developments (e.g. any issuance of a notice of apparent liability for forfeiture) would render the proceeding restricted."
