First Net Neutrality Case to Reach Court in Early December
USTelecom and other opponents to the FCC's net neutrality rules will have their first day in court come December. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit will hear initial oral arguments regarding the FCC's internet regulation rules on Dec. 4.

The rules also reclassify wireless and wired broadband services under Title II of the Telecommunications Act of 1934. USTelecom and its constituents believe the FCC acted beyond its authority in implementing the laws and seeks their repeal.
