Supreme Court rejects net neutrality appeal but FCC ruling stands

"The court's newest justice, Brett Kavanaugh, was expected to recuse himself from voting on the petitions because he had participated in the cases while on the D.C. Circuit, and he did". Aside from the DACA program, the youths have no legal right to remain in the country because they either entered illegally or over-stayed entry visas and thus became illegal residents. On Monday, Francisco told the Court that expeditious review has not happened.

The Supreme Court decided on Monday that it will not consider a series of challenges from telecom companies to Obama-era net neutrality rules created to bar internet service providers from manipulating loading speeds for specific websites or apps.

The US Supreme Court has declined to hear the broadband industry's challenge of Obama-era net neutrality rules.

In 2016, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled in favor of the FCC's regulations protecting net neutrality in United States Telecom Association v.

Democratic FCC commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel, who had supported the 2015 Net Neutrality regulations, said, "it wasn't enough for this FCC to roll back It actually petitioned the Supreme Court to erase history and wipe out an earlier court decision upholding open internet policies".

USTelecom downplayed the importance of the court ruling in a statement.

Federal judges in NY and Washington have also ruled against the Trump administration.


The legality of the separate DACA program for undocumented immigrant youths had never been tested in court (although an expansion of that program fell with the court rulings against the program for undocumented parents).

The FCC's reversal reflected the Trump administration's deregulatory philosophy.

So what was the telecom industry and its BFFs in the Trump administration trying to do? Then last September, he announced that DACA would end six months later unless Congress replaced Obama's executive action with legislation.

The federal government urged the justices to intervene now, emphasizing that the Supreme Court is going to have to step in eventually. Those are the orders that the Administration has now asked the Justices to overturn.

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

"Absent prompt intervention from this court, there is little chance the court would resolve this dispute for at least another year", Francisco wrote in a letter to the Supreme Court. His work has appeared here since mid-2011.
