The EHT court case against the FCC - first report from the hearing in Washington DC.

The EHT has published an article including two video reports, one assessing the way that the hearing went, the other an audio recording from the hearing itself.

I found that latter quite revealing - to a laymen such as myself it seems extraordinary that the FCC (which one might have expected to have expertise in telecomms technology) should have relied on the FDA (Federal Food and Drug Administration) to assess the safety of electronic communications radiations. What were they thinking of?

Anyway, enough of my legally unqualified opinions.

The case continues, but Judge Robert L. Wilkins is reported to have stated to the FCC "I am inclined to rule against you".

Read about the case here.

Read the previous report (22nd January).
