The DC Court of Appeals has finally responded to R2013-10.

Rule Info, Postal News summary – The appeals court sent the dispute back to the Postal Regulatory Commission, calling its decision in a rate case that was filed in September 2013 “arbitrary and capricious for lack of reasoned decision making.”It told the commission in a May 12 ruling that it must rewrite the decision “to enunciate an intelligible standard and then reconsider its decision in light of that standard.”The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia also rejected many of the U.S. Postal Service’s arguments against the commission’s ruling in the case.
