US states file case to overturn FCC net neutrality changes

Tuesday 21 August 2018 | 10:21 CET | News
A group of 23 US states has filed a lawsuit seeking a court order to reinstate the former net neutrality rules in the US. The suit, led by the New York Attorney General and filed at the US Court of Appeals for the Washington, DC Circuit, seeks to vacate and reverse the FCC's order which took effect in June, overturning much of the internet protections. A separate suit led by Mozilla and civil society groups was also filed, seeking the same outcome.
