US Internet Corps Sue California Over Net Neutrality Law
Oct 3, 2018, 12:01 PM by Eric M. Zeman
Four major internet company lobbying organizations have filed a lawsuit against California seeking to block the state's new net neutrality law. California recently signed into law strict rules governing internet providers to prevent throttling, blocking, and paid prioritization. The CTIA, USTelecom, America Cable Association, and NCTA filed jointly, calling the law a "classic example of unconstitutional state regulation." FCC Chairman Ajit Pai and U.S. General Attorney Jeff Sessions have both called the law illegal and vowed to fight it. The Justice Department, under Sessions' leadership, filed its own lawsuit against California. California's action was the direct result of the FCC's dismantling of Obama-era net neutrality laws earlier this year. The DOJ's case will first be heard in November. It's not clear how quickly the internet lobbying groups' lawsuit will reach the courts.
