Just when she thought it was safe to disrobe…

Despite a federal court's ruling in July that CBS should not be held responsible for Janet Jackson's Justin Timberlake-assisted Super Bowl wardrobe malfunction, the FCC has asked the Supreme Court to reconsider the finding and reinstate a $550,000 indecency fine on the network.

Over the summer, a Philadelphia court tossed the fine resulting from the now more than four-year-old incident, claiming the FCC was "arbitrary" and "capricious" in deciding to punish the broadcaster.

Justice for Jackson?
Was the FCC right to appeal the ruling, or are they just making a boob of themselves?
