Environmental Groups Sue FCC over Cell Phone Towers – The Forest Conservation Council (FCC), the American Bird Conservancy (ABC) and the Friends of the Earth (FoE) filed a lawsuit against the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.

The suit alleges that the FCC violated the National Environmental Policy Act, the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and the Endangered Species Act by allowing 5,820 cell phone towers to be constructed along the Gulf Coast of the U.S. from Tampa, Fla., to Port Isabel in Texas.

The groups say that tens of thousands of migratory birds have been killed by flying into the towers or their support wireless at night and when visibility is poor.
