Two lawsuits filed against FCC’s new Net Neutrality rules
In opposition of the US Federal communications Commission (FFC)'s tough new Net Neutrality regulations, two lawsuits were filed on Monday by telecom firms. The lawsuits mark the first legal actions initiated against the Net Neutrality rules which were passed by the FCC in a 3-2 vote on February 26.
One of the lawsuits opposing the new Net neutrality regulations has been filed by the US Telecom Association, whose members include bigwig US wireless carriers like Verizon and AT&T; while the other lawsuit has been filed by small Internet service provider Alamo Broadband.
Both the lawsuits claim that the new Net Neutrality regulations approved by the FCC are in violation of the Constitution, the federal telecommunications law, as well as the procedural requirements put in place for drafting regulations.
For the lawsuits, the telecom firms will apparently draw attention to all the major legal arguments which have been raised against the Net Neutrality regulations since the FCC passed the new rules late last month.
Specifically, in its lawsuit, US Telecom has claimed that the FCC's Net Neutrality regulations are "arbitrary, capricious, and an abuse of discretion" under the Administrative Procedure Act. According to the association, the FCC failed to provide a factual basis for supporting its decision to enact the new Net Neutrality regulations.
