San Francisco Appeals Court to Hear Challenges Against FCC

Back in February, we reported that over 20 states are suing the FCC in an effort to reverse the repeal and preemption of state laws. Additional suits have been filed by companies and organizations such as Free Press, Mozilla Corp., Vimeo, Inc., Public Knowledge and the Open Technology Institute. A federal judicial panel on March 9th confirmed the FCC will be obligated to defend the repeal of Net Neutrality as these challenges are heard by an appeals court in San Francisco. The court was randomly selected to hear the case in a lottery, which is standard practice.

We will keep the blog updated with further information as the litigations unfold, so follow us on Twitter and Facebook for future posts!
