You've read about the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in the "fleeting expletives" case.  Today Blawgletter welcomes you back to the case involving a "fleeting image of nudity" that, for 9/16 of a second, broadcast a picture of Janet Jackson's bare right-side area between the bottom of her rib cage and her shoulder.

The Federal Communications Commission condemned CBS's failure to stop transmission of the nakedness.  It assessed a $550,000 fine.  The Third Circuit vacated the order as "arbitrary and capricious".  See "Third Circuit Strips 'Wardrobe Malfunction' Fine".

The Supreme Court today vacated the Third Circuit's decision and remanded the case to that court "for further consideration in light of FCC v. Fox Television Stations, 550 U.S. ___ (2009)."
