The authors present their views concerning the witness management practices of Kevin Martin, chairman of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC), at Harvard Law School in Cambridge, Massachusetts in February 2008. Particularly, they point out the alphabetical order ruled by Martin for the witness program, which made executive vice president David Cohen of Comcast Corp. to wait for over an hour. They claim that Martin's alphabetical lineup is discriminatory and unfair.
