United States Court of Appeals

FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CIRCUIT

____________

No. 11-1443

September Term 2011

FCC-11-154

Filed On:

April 18, 2012
TV Communications Network, Inc.,
Petitioner
v.
Federal Communications Commission and
United States of America,
Respondents

BEFORE:

Garland, Brown, and Kavanaugh, Circuit Judges

O R D E R

Upon consideration of the motion for dismissal in part and for summary
affirmance in part, the opposition thereto, and the reply, it is

ORDERED

that the motion for summary affirmance of the Federal
Communications Commission’s order filed October 14, 2011, be granted. The merits of
the parties' positions are so clear as to warrant summary action. See Taxpayers
Watchdog, Inc. v. Stanley, 819 F.2d 294, 297 (D.C. Cir. 1987) (per curiam). The
agency properly denied appellant’s motion for extension of time to file its petition for
reconsideration and, accordingly, properly dismissed that petition as untimely, because
appellant presented no “extremely unusual circumstances” warranting the agency’s
acceptance of that untimely petition. Virgin Islands Telephone Corp. v. FCC, 989 F.2d
1231, 1237 (D.C. Cir. 1993) (citing Reuters Limited v. FCC, 781 F.2d 946 (D.C. Cir.
1986)). It is

FURTHER ORDERED

that the motion to dismiss the appeal from the
Commission’s order filed January 5, 2010, be granted. The notice of appeal was filed
more than thirty days from the date of that order. See 47 U.S.C. § 402(c); Waterway
Communications Systems, Inc. v. FCC, 851 F.2d 401, 405 (D.C. Cir. 1988).
Pursuant to D.C. Circuit Rule 36, this disposition will not be published. The Clerk
is directed to withhold issuance of the mandate herein until seven days after resolution
