The company has now reportedly retained two high-profile lawyers -- Theodore Olson and Eugene Scalia -- in an indication that its fight could go to the courts.
"On the face of things, it looks to me like the government has acted arbitrarily after inducing the expenditure of an enormous number of resources,” Olson tells Politico.
Olson is probably best known for representing President George W. Bush before the Supreme Court in Bush v. Gore in the decision that decided the 2000 election.
Why this matters LightSquared hasn't directly laid out a strategy yet, but the company hasn't ruled out legal action in the past. Time may prove to be a factor, however, as the company said in December 2011 that it only had enough cash to continue operating for several quarters. LightSquared started to cut its workforce this year.
