CHD v. FCC Case Filed
On 2/26/2021, Children’s Health Defense (CHD) submitted a new case (called a Petition for Review) against the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) challenging the amendment to “High Air Receiving Devices”Signature (OTARD). The revised rule was adopted by the FCC on 1/7/2021 and implemented on 3/29/2021.
CHD’s Petition was joined by four individual petitioners, including a doctor and two parents, each with two children injured by wireless radiation. The case was filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit.
Our Case OTARD
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., rightly describes OTARD as a “draconian rule“As it has more impact. Since CHD is aware that the FCC intends to use this rule, it is clear to us that allowing it to take effect without challenge is not an option.
In April 2020, CHD began the campaign against OTARD by laying the groundwork for a lawsuit when it submitted a 22-page letter with the FCC. the The letter was attended by a record number of 15,090 people, and a shocking number of them, 6,231, declared that they and / or their children were injured by wireless radiation.
More than 2,500 people added personal comments, most of them for reasons, with painful testimonies of illness and death caused by wireless radiation. Continue here for a collection of 246 comments. Parents wrote about their children’s illness with cancer, radiation sickness, and the exacerbating effects of wireless on their children’s autism symptoms and attacks. They fear the detrimental effects that OTARD adoption will have on their lives.
CHD’s suit, filed under the Administrative Procedure Act, states that the FCC’s adoption of OTARD violates constitutional rights and upends long-standing common law personal and property rights. It carries with it violations of due process, unfairness, abuse of discretion, and it is passed without the authority and jurisdiction of the law.
