Wardrobe Malfunction: The Appeal

Today's Legal Times has an article by Jeff Horwitz discussing the CBS appeal of the FCC ruling regarding the Janet Jackson Super Bowl 2004 halftime "wardrobe malfunction"(subscription required), or you can read it here at Law.com. The Third Circuit has scheduled oral arguments for tomorrow. The media replayed the "malfunction" itself hundreds of times so the public could judge it; now a panel of judges will decide whether Janet's flesh was indecent flash.

Here's a Washington Post article from November of 2006 discussing the case, which generated more than half a million dollars in fines for CBS and its affiliates.
