The court pointed out that Jackson’s breast was exposed on television for 9/16 of a second, and thought that the FCC’s $977,777.78 per-second rate for bared cleavage was the result of the agency acting “arbitrarily and capriciously” and that since the image was fleeting, it wasn’t worthy of being fined.
