The battle over hefty fines imposed for Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction" at the 2004 Super Bowl is ready to return to court. It has been nearly eight months since the U.S. Supreme Court ordered the 3rd Circuit to take a second look at the case and consider reinstating $550,000 in fines that the FCC imposed on CBS over Jackson's breast-baring performance. Since then, the 3rd Circuit has ordered both sides to file supplemental briefs. The case has also attracted a flurry of amicus briefs.
