AG files lawsuit to stop rollback of net neutrality

AG files lawsuit to stop rollback of net neutrality

"Those rules had prohibited Internet providers from slowing down or blocking websites".

Schneiderman was among almost two dozen state attorneys general to sue the federal government Tuesday over its roll-back of Internet neutrality rules last month. The petitioners will likely argue the FCC oversaw a flawed comment period and ignored sound reasoning on the road to a net neutrality appeal.

At the time, net neutrality proponents had warned that lawsuits were sure to follow the controversial decision, which millions of consumers, consumer advocates, tech companies and others weighed in about. It would 218 total votes to pass in the House of Representatives. Technically, Pai's effort to scrap the FCC's open internet safeguards isn't official, because the full text of his order has not yet been published in a little-known government repository called the Federal Register.

Zinedine Zidane Laments Real Madrid Woes Following Villarreal Defeat
Toni Kroos concedes that Real Madrid should now be focusing on Champions League qualification rather than the La Liga title. However, the visitors improved in the second period and deservedly went ahead after breaking at pace from a Real corner.

"The multi-state lawsuit comes just a day after Democrats in the Senate said they were inching closer to the votes needed for a legislative measure to help overturn the FCC's rules", The Post adds. According to the senator from NY, they now have a total of 50 votes for a Senate resolution of disapproval that would restore the Open Internet Order of 2015 and deliver a stiff rebuke to Ajit Pai and other Republican members of the FCC. The list includes names that will sound familiar to Bay Area residents: Reps. State lawmakers have also introduced bills to protect net neutrality in their own states.

In petitions filed in a Washington, D.C., appeals court, supporters of those protections each slammed Pai for acting in an arbitrary and capricious manner, adding that the FCC chairman had essentially ignored the public's pleas to preserve the US government's online safeguards.

They're looking forward to wielding the issue in the fall elections. Trump backed the FCC action, the White House said last month, and overturning a presidential veto requires a two-thirds vote of both chambers. "That's why I'm proud to lead this broad coalition of 22 attorneys general in filing suit to stop the FCC's illegal rollback of net neutrality". "Where do you want to sit on Amtrak?" he said.
