Washington, D.C. — In a win for Boyden Gray PLLC and its clients, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit granted en bancreview in Consumers’ Research v. Federal Communications Commission. The firm proudly represents Consumers’ Research and Cause Based Commerce, Inc. in the case.

“The FCC’s Universal Service Fund — which is paid for by a tax on millions of Americans’ monthly phone bills and collects nearly $10 billion annually — violates the nondelegation and private-nondelegation doctrines,” said Trent McCotter, Boyden Gray PLLC Partner. “We are pleased that the Fifth Circuit granted en banc review of our case, and we will continue our fight ensuring the federal government respects the Constitution’s separation of powers.” 

This is the latest effort in the firm’s efforts against unlawful government overreach. Earlier this year, the firm won its challenge inAlliance to Fair Board Recruitment v.  Weber, where a federal district court found that a California law mandating racial, ethnic, and sexual-orientation diversity in corporate boards violated the Fourteenth Amendment.  The firm also won a nationwide injunction in Feds for Medical Freedom v. Biden against President Biden’s unlawful executive order mandating the vaccination of all federal employees, succeeding where over a dozen other lawsuits failed.

Boyden Gray PLLC provides clients with strategic counsel, regulatory engagement, and impact litigation on the most difficult issues across law, public policy, and politics. The firm represents clients – including corporations, shareholders, trade associations, and individuals – in a range of industries, including energy, financial services, and healthcare.
