Supreme Court declines to consider challenge to decision upholding net neutrality rules

  • U.S. Supreme Court Rejects Net Neutrality Appeals After Year DelayMore

The Trump administration is asking the Supreme Court to fast-track cases on the president's decision to end a program that shields young immigrants from deportation.

Despite the Supreme Court decision to not hear the case, Republicans remain hopeful that the FCC's vote last December to repeal net neutrality rules will be upheld, though that decision is being challenged before the DC Circuit. AT&T and other telecoms had asked the high court to void the ruling; the Federal Communications Commission repealed net neutrality previous year. Instead, lower courts are examining how the government chose to wind it down.

Chief Justice John Roberts and new Justice Brett Kavanaugh didn't participate in the Supreme Court's action.

The U.S. Supreme Court for a second straight year refused on Monday to hear a challenge to California's limits on carrying handguns in public, dealing another setback to gun rights proponents.

That opinion, in 2016, held that the Federal Communications Commission had acted within its powers when it approved sweeping new rules the year before that imposed new obligations on internet providers such as AT&T, Comcast and Verizon.

The legal moves reflected a desire by conservatives and industry players to cement the FCC's repeal of net neutrality rules, which were created to restrict Internet service providers' ability to manipulate loading speeds for specific websites or apps.

The brief court order noted that three of the court's conservative justices, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch, would have thrown out the appeals court decision.

It also aimed to remove the lower court's verdict from the books so that it couldn't be used as a precedent, something that could prove significant given the ongoing legal actions that challenge the FCC's 2017 repeal of net neutrality. Neither gave a reason, but Kavanaugh played a role in the case on the appeals court, saying he would have overturned the net neutrality rule.

The FCC itself also was in favor of voiding the decision that upheld its 2015-era rules, according to Jessica Rosenworcel, a Democrat on the commission. The Pai-led FCC is defending its net neutrality repeal against a lawsuit filed by dozens of litigants, including 22 state attorneys general, consumer advocacy groups, and tech companies.
