CITIZEN GROUP ASKS U.S. SUPREME COURT TO ORDER THE FCC TO STUDY HEALTH EFFECTS OF
BROADCAST TV, RADIO AND CELL TOWERS EMISSIONS
Washington, D.C., May 10, 2005 — EMR Network, a nationwide advocacy group of citizens and professionals concerned with the environmental impact of radiofrequency (RF) radiation, today filed a petition in the United States Supreme Court asking the Court to order the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to research the impact on human health of continuous low-power ultra-high frequency wireless transmissions.
The group’s petition for certiorari asks the high court to overturn an FCC order and Court of Appeals decision refusing to gather information and thoroughly investigate the consequences of 24/7 exposure to signals from TV/Radio broadcast facilities and cell towers that power 180 million mobile phones across the country. Current FCC RF exposure limits make no distinction between children, the elderly, or the ailing among the general population.
Whitney North Seymour, Jr. is providing legal counsel for this appeal pro bono. His legal career has included private practice, a term as federal prosecutor for New York, and public interest work with a particular interest in environmental law, having co-founded the Natural Resources Defense Council in 1969. He also served as a senator in the New York State Assembly. The EMR Policy Institute assisted in preparing the petition.
