Supreme Court rejects net neutrality appeal but FCC ruling stands

Adjust Comment Print

The appeals lingered mostly because the Trump administration sought repeated extensions of the deadline for filing the government's brief. The Federal Communications Commission under President Donald Trump has rolled back the rules, but the industry also wanted to wipe the court ruling off the books. On Monday, Francisco told the Court that expeditious review has not happened.

Although each of the appeals raises the same questions, the Administration asked the Justices to grant review of all three together.

The reason Big Cable persisted in that challenge - even after the rules were struck down by Pai's FCC - is because it fears the decision will act as a legal precedent against the new rules when yet another lawsuit is heard.

Should the Supreme Court refuse his request, Francisco pointed out, the administration would be required to continue accepting DACA applications while waiting on California's ninth circuit to rule on the legality of ending the program.

The Federal Communications Commission's 2015 order to impose net neutrality rules and strictly regulate broadband was already reversed by Trump's pick for FCC chairman, Ajit Pai. And the Justice Department acknowledged in Monday's request that the appeals court ruling is likely to come first.

Mourinho hails 'fantastic' Manchester United win over Juventus
He's an artist who plays the game with so much class but he also has that cutting edge, as well as unbelievable feet and balance. Ronaldo's comments, coupled with his goal celebration, has been strongly criticized by a section of United fans on social media.

That is the lead case that the Administration appealed to the Justices on Monday. The case is now before the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which is widely viewed as a liberal-leaning court. The net neutrality rules prevent an internet service provider or a wireless carrier from setting up a fast lane that can be purchased by a company that streams video or audio content.

The policy has shielded from deportation immigrants dubbed "Dreamers" and given them work permits, though not a path to citizenship. But today the Supreme Court refused to do so.

Sessions went on to explain how the Trump administration has the power to end DACA, because it was put in place by the Obama administration without approval from Congress or the courts. Although the DACA program has wide public support, the issue of its continuation got caught up in Congress in the midst of a deep political fight over broader immigration policy and thus DACA has not been rescued by Congress.

Additional challenges to DACA are winding their way through appeals courts in NY and the District of Columbia following district court rulings against Trump's plan to end the program.

"It is assumed that the Court of Appeals will proceed expeditiously to decide this case", the Supreme Court's February order read.
