TeleFrieden: Preliminary Summary of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Network Neutrality Decision
TeleFrieden: Preliminary Summary of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Network Neutrality Decision: "By a 2-1 vote, reflecting vastly different legal philosophies and regulator expectations, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected all challenges to the FCC’s Open Internet Order.  The majority deemed limited its review function and opted to apply ample case precedent that defers to regulatory agencies on both procedural and substantive areas.  In a nutshell, the majority opted not to second guess the FCC and expressed support for the Commission’s interpretation of law and its assessment of how consumers access the Internet and what they expect from service providers.  This decision supports a rare instance where the FCC substantially expands its regulatory wingspan, despite the general trend toward less government oversight. " 'via Blog this'
