NAB has filed a lawsuit challenging an element of the FCC rules requiring satellite TV companies to carry all local TV stations in all markets they serve. Filed Feb. 1 in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C.

The Satellite Broadcasting & Communications Association and satellite TV company EchoStar previously filed suits seeking to do away with the rules.
