Oral Arguments to Begin in Major Net Neutrality Case

"A federal appeals court in Washington D.C. will hear arguments Friday in a challenge to the Federal Communications Commission's 2017 decision to end net neutrality. The challengers, a coalition of tech companies and digital rights advocates, are asking the court to reinstate Obama-era rules that barred internet service providers like Comcast and Verizon from blocking or prioritizing internet traffic. The FCC defends the rollback as encouraging innovation and easing unnecessary regulatory burdens. We'll discuss the case and its implications for California, which enacted its own rules protecting net neutrality last fall.
