On late Thursday afternoon, March 17, 2016, the Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit ruled in favor of HCH Legal's client Latina Broadcasters of Daytona Beach, ordering the FCC to provisionally include Latina in its broadcast spectrum auction.
"We are obviously very pleased with the court's decision," said David Wachen of HCH Legal, "We think it is a very appropriate approach. We were happy to hear the court thought we had a strong case on the merits and we are hopeful that maybe the FCC will revisit its view and do the right thing and allow Latina to participate fully so that it could focus its resources on broadcasting and the business instead of litigating. We are optimistic about our case on appeal."
