DOJ sues Calif. over new net neutrality bill

California's 'gold standard' net neutrality becomes law CA gov. signs net neutrality bill into law, Justice Department sues
Allan Lindsey | 02 October, 2018, 13:12

The department filed a lawsuit against the state, alleging the new piece of legislation is "unlawful and anti-consumer".

He has previously argued that ending net neutrality would give the private sector "greater incentives to invest" in the new generation of super-fast 5G wireless networks and ensure the United States keeps its technological edge over other nations.

It is one of several measures affecting women that Brown signed Sunday, his last opportunity to approve or veto laws before the term-limited governor leaves office. When all is said and done, Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T are going to wish they'd never picked a fight with Internet over net neutrality. This means that the California state government doesn't get to pass bills that conflict directly with the ones the federal government has passed. The new law aims to protect internet safeguards implemented by the Obama administration, which were rolled back by the FCC previous year.

A new law requires publicly traded companies headquartered in California, including Facebook and Google, to include women on their board of directors.

An evaluation report by European football's governing body said giving the right to host to Turkey presented " risks ". Germany have been awarded the right to host the 2024 European Championship by Uefa ahead of a rival bid from Turkey .

"I favor a free and open internet as I think most consumers do, my concern is with the particular regulations the FCC adopted two years ago, my concern is that by imposing those heavy-handed economic regulations on internet service providers both big and small we could end up disincentivizing companies from wanting to build out internet access to a lot of parts of the country", stated Pai. California joins OR and Washington as states that have successfully passed a net neutrality bill.

Brown also acknowledged that the law could face legal challenges, but said the law was necessary to make an effort toward gender equality.

Senator Scott Weiner, who introduced the proposal in the state assembly, believes that California can defend itself - and the bill - in court, citing past skirmishes against the Trump administration with regards to immigration policies. "While the Trump Administration does everything in its power to undermine our democracy, we in California will continue to do what's right for our residents".

Consequently, numerous other 25-odd states mulling over passing their own net-neutrality laws are undoubtedly going to keep tabs on the outcome of this trial, making this crucial to the fate of net-neutrality in the U.S. And it's a beacon of hope for Internet users everywhere who are fighting for the basic right to express themselves and access information without cable and phone companies controlling what they can see and do online." said Evan Greer (pronouns: "she/her), deputy director of Fight for the Future, the digital rights group that played a leading role in passing SB 822 and bringing national attention to the bill. Well, we do. We'll fight you & win, just like we did when you sued us on protecting immigrants.
