Supreme Court won’t take up Net neutrality

The U.S. Supreme Court turned away a group of long-pending appeals from the broadband industry over the Obama-era "net neutrality" rule, which barred internet service providers from giving preferential treatment to some web traffic.

The FCC, under Chairman Ajit Pai, abolished net neutrality rules in June, adopting the deregulatory approach favored by the Trump administration and the telecommunications industry.

Under Barack Obama's administration, the FCC passed neutrality rules in 2015, effectively allowing it to regulate broadband in a similar way to telephone services.

The lower court rulings left the 700,000 protected but prevented any more from registering for the program.

Although Justices Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, and Clarence Thomas are said to have favored the appeal, Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh are said to have recused themselves from making a determination.

It takes four of the nine justices to agree to hear a case. Regardless, net neutrality supporters were encouraged by the Court's decision. Those extensions gave the FCC time to put the new rule in place before the court acted.

The move also attracted significant star power from singer John Legend and Orange is the New Black author Piper Kerman. Scott was running for senator in the state this election cycle due to being term-limited out of office.


The Supreme Court said Monday that it will not hear a closely watched case over the future of the internet - rejecting a petition by telecom industry groups to consider net neutrality, or the principle that internet providers should treat all online content equally.

Jessica Rosenworcel, the Federal Communication Commission's only Democratic Commissioner, noted that the FCC had argued that because the Trump-era FCC had repealed the 2015 rules, the 2016 decision was moot and should be wiped from the books.

Although the Supreme Court rarely grants requests to bypass the appeals court stage, the DACA case involves unusual circumstances. "Let's call this interesting".

United States Telecom Association (USTelecom) president and CEO Jonathan Spalter, echoed that the SCOTUS's vote was expected, as the FCC's more recent Restoring Internet Freedom Order "remains the law of the land…USTelecom will continue to support that order from challenges in Washington, D.C. and state capitals".

The Justice Department also has filed suit to block California's state net neutrality law from taking effect in January.
