The Washington Post reported that a hearing is set on December 4, 2015 to consider the “government’s net neutrality rules banning telecom and cable companies from unfairly discriminating against new or potential rivals.” One of the three judges who will hear the case at the DC Circuit Court of Appeals is Judge David Tatel who authored the case of Verizon v. FCC that led to the current FCC Net Neutrality in 2014:
…that the FCC misused its powers to impose net neutrality on Internet providers. But they never explicitly said what the FCC should do to get on the right side of the law. That has led to a furious debate over the court’s ruling. Partisans on both sides say the court laid out a very clear road map for the FCC; it’s just that each side disagrees on what that road map actually said.
Net Neutrality is a legal concept that will not go away and impacts everyone.
