Supreme Court Rejects Net Neutrality Case

The Supreme Court's rejection of this appeal ensures the D.C. Circuit's decision remains in the record as binding precedent for the FCC's authority to adopt strong net neutrality rules. The high court doesn't typically take cases before federal appeals courts rule on them.

A three-judge panel at the San Francisco-based federal appellate court heard arguments in May on whether the administration could end DACA, and the federal government had warned it would ask for high-court intervention if the appeals court did not decide by last Wednesday.

Those new regulations are the subject of a separate challenge pending in the appeals court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood, who served as acting solicitor general in the Clinton administration, said the Justice Department has shown serious disregard for ordinary judicial process in the DACA case and other disputes in a Monday evening tweet. In a brief two-sentence order in February, the court rejected the government's request "without prejudice" - leaving the government the option to file another petition for review later on, presumably after the 9th Circuit ruled on its appeal.

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 district court's order requires the government to indefinitely tolerate - and, indeed, affirmative sanction - an ongoing violation of federal law being committed by almost 700,000 aliens pursuant to the DACA policy", the Justice Department said. If the Supreme Court had accepted the petitions or vacated the lower court rulings, doing so would have strengthened the FCC's repeal.

Aside from her work at Telstra, she has also spent time at technology majors including Juniper Networks and Sun Microsystems. As part of Musk's settlement with the SEC, Tesla also has to monitor his Twitter posts if they relate to the firm.


Additional challenges to DACA are winding their way through appeals courts in NY and the District of Columbia following district court rulings against Trump's plan to end the program. But in September 2017, the the Trump administration announced its plans to terminate DACA, making some of the 800,000 young adults who qualified for the program eligible again for deportation. Although the DACA program has wide public support, the issue of its continuation got caught up in Congress in the midst of a deep political fight over broader immigration policy and thus DACA has not been rescued by Congress.
