FCC Shares Documents Requested About LightSquare Under FOIA

Writes the FCC on the website:

The Federal Communications Commission has received numerous requests under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) for documents related to LightSquared, Sky Terra, Mobile Satellite Ventures, Motient, Harbinger, TerraStar, and people related to these entities. For the convenience of the requesters and the public, under the “frequently requested records” provision of the FOIA, 5 U.S.C. § 552(a)(2)(D), the FCC has created this public web portal to provide ready access to publicly available documents and other responsive documents not otherwise exempt from release under the FOIA. The FCC is still in the process of releasing documents responsive to the FOIA requests and will inform all FOIA requesters when we have concluded releasing documents.

It's kind of a mess, with documents divided in three systems. Hopefully, those people who know what they are looking for, and if it's comment, IBFS or Congressional Zip know where to look.
NextGov reports there's nothing in this offering that has not yet been publicly released and points to GPS World as one of the requestors who did not get the information requested.
