(Worthy News) - The joint petition to review the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) repeal of net-neutrality rules was filed Tuesday by attorneys general for 21 states and the District of Colombia.
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (pictured), who is leading the lawsuit that also includes California and Virginia, said the FCC order will hurt US consumers and businesses when it takes effect later this year.
Technology companies and consumer advocacy organizations that oppose the FCC's decision are also expected to support legal attempts to block the order. [ Source: Deutche Welle (Read More...) ]
