United States Court of Appeals

FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CIRCUIT

____________

No. 12-1169

September Term 2011

FCC-12-26

Filed On: August 8, 2012

Warren C. Havens,
Petitioner
v.
Federal Communications Commission and
United States of America,
Respondents

BEFORE:

Sentelle, Chief Judge, and Garland and Kavanaugh, Circuit Judges

O R D E R

Upon consideration of the motion to hold in abeyance, the response thereto, and
the reply; and the motion to dismiss, the response thereto, and the reply, it is

ORDERED

that the motion to hold in abeyance be denied. It is

FURTHER ORDERED

that the motion to dismiss be granted. Because of the
pendency of petitioner’s request for administrative reconsideration, the agency order
petitioner challenges is not a final reviewable order with respect to petitioner, and his
petition for review is incurably premature. See Wade v. FCC, 986 F.2d 1433, 1434
(D.C. Cir. 1993) (per curiam); TeleSTAR, Inc. v. FCC, 888 F.2d 132, 134 (D.C. Cir.
1989); United Transp. Union v. ICC, 871 F.2d 1114, 1116-18 (D.C. Cir. 1989). Once
the agency rules on petitioner’s request for administrative reconsideration, whether by
granting or denying it on the merits or by denying petitioner permission to file the
administrative reconsideration, the agency order(s) become “final” and petitioner may
seek review.


Pursuant to D.C. Circuit Rule 36, this disposition will not be published.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
