Editorial #45-Recent FCC Filings

As indicated previously, the reply to comments period has closed as of May 21, 2010. In order for us as consumers to be aware of what the VRS providers and consumer organizations have filed with the FCC as well as other developments, here’s the current list of filings. An “ex parte” filing occurs when a VRS company meets with or contacts the FCC. All meetings with the FCC must be documented and acknowledged as it is a public and open process.

The following are links to reply comments that were filed on or before May 21st and ex parte comments since May 14th:

Some of the documents were filed by internal counsel and some were filed by outside counsel. It should be noted that Sorenson has brought in a new outside counsel in their ex parte filing with the FCC.
