Broadband industry sues California over net neutrality bill
By Thom Holwerda on 2018-10-03 21:37:39

Four lobbying groups representing some of the largest telecom companies in the country filed a lawsuit Wednesday opposing California's net neutrality law in an attempt to stop it from going into effect next year.

The four industry groups filing the lawsuit were USTelecom, CTIA, NCTA, and the ACA - groups which represent telecom corporations like AT&T; Verizon Wireless; Charter Communications; and Comcast, and mobile companies like T-Mobile. This is the second lawsuit filed following the passage of California's net neutrality law on Sunday. The first was fired off by the Department of Justice only hours after the bill received its final signature from Governor Jerry Brown.

States' rights totally matter, but only when it comes to oppressing women and buying pointless guns - not when it comes to protecting consumers from the predatory, anti-consumer corporations that line politicians' pockets.
