Apparent Liability for Forfeiture
Adopted: March 16, 2012 Released: March 16, 2012
By the Chief, Enforcement Bureau:
1. On September 17, 2008, the Enforcement Bureau (Bureau) issued a forfeiture
order against Channel 51 of San Diego, Inc., Licensee of KUSI-TV (KUSI).' In the Forfeiture
Order, the Bureau found that KUSI had violated Section 713 of the Communications Act of
1934, as amended (Act),- and Section 79.2(b)(I )(i) of the Commission's rules,3 and imposed a
forfeiture of $25,000 for these violations.
2. On October 17, 2008, KUSI filed an Application for Review of the Forfeiture
Order.4 On January 9, 2009, KUSI filed a Supplement to its Application for Review, arguing for
the first time in the administrative proceeding that it was not liable for a forfeiture because the
Bureau's action was inconsistent with Section 503(b)(6) of the Act.5 In addition, after the
Bureau issued the Forfeiture Order, the United States filed a complaint against KUSI to recover
the forfeiture. KUSI filed a motion to dismiss, which the court granted on March 16, 2010.6
3. After careful review of the facts and circumstances, we conclude that it is
appropriate to treat KIJSI's Application for Review as a Petition for Reconsideration of the
Channel 51 of San Diego. Inc.. Forfeiture Order, 23 FCC Rcd 13488 (Enf. Bur. 2008) (Forfeiture Order).
