On April 22, 2010, the FCC filed a petition for writ of certiorari seeking the Supreme Court’s review of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit’s order in AT&T, Inc. v. FCC (No. 08-4024), in which the court held that the FCC misinterpreted the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) when it ruled that AT&T, as a corporate entity, did not qualify for FOIA’s “personal privacy” exemption. The FCC’s November 6, 2009 petition for panel rehearing or rehearing en banc was denied by the Third Circuit on November 23, 2009.
