FCC Order Concerning 911 Service & VOIP Providers Upheld

The US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit rejected a challenge to a rule that requires providers of telephone service using Voice over IP (VOIP) to ensure that customers can use 911 emergency service.  You can read the opinion here.  It's a typical Chevron type case in many ways, but it has the wrinkle of addressing the notion of when it's acceptable for an agency to 'change directions' in light of technological changes.  Unanimous decision with a concurrence.
