On refusal of the Federal Radio Commission to renew its license for a broadcasting station with the existing terms, on the ground that public convenience and necessity did not require it, the applicant company availed itself of a statutory appeal to the court of appeals of the District of Columbia which reversed the finding as to public convenience and necessity. The commission applied to the United States Supreme Court for a writ of certiorari. Held, writ dismissed on the theory that the court had no jurisdiction to review the exercise pf an administrative or legislative power, and that the commission had acted in such administrative capacity. Review by the court of appeals was approved, it being a legislative court capable of being invested with such power by statute. Fed. Radio Commission v. General Electric Co., 281 U. S. 464, 50 Sup. Ct. 389, 74 L. ed. 969.
