Janet Jackson breast case appealed to top US court

WASHINGTON (AFP) - A case involving a fine over a 'wardrobe malfunction' which exposed pop superstar Janet Jackson's breast during the 2004 Super Bowl broadcast was appealed to the United States Supreme Court on Wednesday.
Court documents showed the Federal Communications asked the top US court to reimpose the fine on CBS television network in the long-running legal battle over indecency broadcast standards.

The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) levied the US$550,000 (S$689,000) fine against CBS in 2006 for breaking indecency rules during a halftime performance by Jackson at the 2004 Super Bowl, the championship game of the National Football League.
CBS appealed the fine and the case has wound its way through the courts since then.
