Net Neutrality Rules Fall in Appeals Court Decision

Fred Dews

A Brookings Now blog post in November asked the question, “Will Net Neutrality Rules Fall in Appeals Court Decision?” The answer is, “Yes” after the court ruled today in Verizon v. FCC  that the Federal Communications Commission “had failed to cite any statutory authority that would justify its order compelling a broadband provider to adhere to open network management practices.” Get the complete ruling here (pdf).

Such practices were explained by former FCC Chairman Julius Genachowki at a Brookings event in 2009.

Find out what other commentary Brookings scholars have provided in the past on net neutrality by re-visiting the earlier blog post.
