The FCC Says Net Neutrality Lawsuits Are Moot Because It Already Repealed Net Neutrality

We’re all now awaiting the Supreme Court case, which will more likely focus on whether or not ISPs have first amendment rights rather than whether the FCC has authority to reclassify industries. As part of the filings for that case, the FCC and the Department of Justice have asked the Supreme Court to vacate the 2016 ruling, claiming that since it’s about rules that don’t exist anymore, it’s now moot. This would weaken many of the arguments of those suing the FCC, which point to legal precedent. – Kaleigh Rogers, MOTHERBOARD https://ift.tt/2MRP4BF
