22 Attorneys General File Lawsuit to Block FCC’s Repeal of Net Neutrality

OAN Newsroom
UPDATED 6:57 A.M. PT — Wed. January 17, 2018

More than 20 states have filed a lawsuit to block the repeal of net neutrality guidelines.

“I am announcing my support for a congressional review act resolution that will restore net neutrality and undo the evil repeal of it by the FCC, and all we need is a majority vote in the House and the Senate and it happens,” announced Senator Chuck Schumer.

Less than two months after the Federal Communications Commission moved to repeal the Obama-era net neutrality protections, states have begun to fight back.

In a lawsuit filed Tuesday, 22 attorneys general from Hawaii to Maine moved to block the FCC’s rollback. Since it’s enactment in 2015, congressional leaders have openly criticized the net neutrality guidelines, saying the rules “stifle investment.”

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai agrees. While he favors a free and open internet, Pai claims the guidelines do more harm than good, while hindering both consumers and corporations.

A group of 22 state attorneys general has sued to block the Federal Communications Commission’s repeal of net-neutrality rules. These rules barred companies like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon from interfering with internet traffic and favoring their own sites and apps.

“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: low income and rural parts of the country for example,” Pai stated. “That I think is something no one would benefit from.”

However, the attorneys general involved in the recent lawsuit argue a repeal would be a “disaster to consumers and business,” and would “turn internet service providers into gatekeepers.”

The political battle has begun. In a statement Tuesday, Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey said 50 Democrats in the Senate support the decision to block the FCC’s decision, but this may not be enough.

If Democrats are successful in the Senate, they would still need to win a majority in the House of Representatives, which is a chamber currently dominated by Republicans.

In the meantime, Ajit Pai says he and his colleagues are continuing to work on creating a replacement to the guidelines, which will benefit both companies and consumers.

“What we’re trying to do going forward is figure out a way to preserve that free and open internet that consumers want and need, and preserve that incentive to invest in the network that will ultimately benefit more consumers going forward,” said Pai.

  1. Chairman Ajit Pai is a hero and has been fighting this Obama power-grab regulation for years. Government Regulation and/or increased regulation are the opposite of free and open, why do the Dems and libtards want it so badly? Control, it is all about control…
    The best Government is LIMITED government…

  2. Seems like the internet was working splendidly from its inception until 2015 when the Manchild implemented Net Neut. Nothing more than guvmnt grab for power using regulations to confiscate more money for itself.

    If there’s any service I do not want the stench of subversive Obama on it’s my internet service. Everyone knows he couldn’t care less about varying service speeds, it was a ploy to get more control to regulate and stifle speech that opposes leftist ideology. Conservatives have used the internet very effectively and that annoys the leftards to no end. Excellent job Ajit, you da man!

  4. America created the Internet.

    “In a statement Tuesday, Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey said 50 Democrats in the Senate support the decision to block the FCC’s decision, but this may not be enough.”
    Why, I did not know the Dems had gained 3 seats prior to any elections. Even with the 2 Indies caucusing with them, they only have 49

    • I read that several times myself and assumed it was more fake news or perhaps even a typo. I too would like to know when that extra Dem came on board, the name, and precisely which state dug him up.

    • Mr. Deplorable | January 18, 2018 at 1:21 am |

      You’re still under the impression we have 50 states. Obama declared there are 57 states, that’s probably why you’re coming up short.

  6. This explains Soros pumping millions into AG and DA races.

    Again in the progressive playbook of doing things, they come bearing lawsuits or protests but no facts to support any of it.
    We can see how accurate their data free conjecture is by the number of US residents dropping dead every time the wind blows, the stock market has hit an all time low causing a COMPLETE collapse of the economy, and last but not least – neither undocumented or documented immigrants, minorities or majorities, companies or citizens are working. No one has any money and they are starving, except of course for the entitled, which the progressives always seem to find someone’s money to give to them in return for their dying devotion at the ballot box – regardless of how eligible or ineligible they are to participate in a free election………………..

  8. This is VERY simple: If Schumer and the MSM think NN is good, then it HAS to be repealed.

  9. I wish this news article would state the grounds being used to file the lawsuit. And I wonder in which court this lawsuit is being filed. Bet that court is getting pretty jammed up with lawsuits.

    • Mr. Deplorable | January 18, 2018 at 1:23 am |

      I’m guessing their filing it in a blue state that has a left leaning federal appeals court. California come to mind.

  10. …”undo the evil repeal of it by the FCC” ANYTHING the POS Schumer favors cannot be in MY best interests.

  11. Even the name is a lie. There is nothing neutral about it, it’s about government regulation and stomping on the free market.

  12. If a State wants Net Neutrality rules, let the State pass a law! Why do these State Attorneys General think they should be able to force federal laws to be created? And why do they think this is an issue for courts?

    Not one of these Attorneys General has a clue how the US is supposed to work.

  14. landy fincannon | January 17, 2018 at 11:02 am |

    The GOP didn’t get it right when the voted to approve NAFTA. Just saying.

    • So, you seem to be saying that only Republicans voted to approve NAFTA. Just saying.

      • landy fincannon | January 17, 2018 at 12:15 pm |

        Their vote was the majority in both houses. Yes, they passed NAFTA and Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich were the cheerleaders

  15. someone is going to control the internet no matter what…either big brother or the big corporations. The little guy will lose either way.

    • Who “controlled” the Internet prior to Obama’s imposition of “Net Neutrality”? And don’t try to claim that Net Neutrality was always in effect, as it was not, UNTIL imposed by Obama.

  16. Anything that will go against the Trump agenda, the DNC jumps on as a major issue of the moment. The DNC morons are so screwed up and dismantled that they will make anything an issue concerning Trump including his weight or blood pressure or toenail size of clippings. And Schumer (schitehead) is the biggesty disruptor of them all…along with all the idiots from California.

    The left just does not know how to accept defeat. They really should be getting used to it…

    Why didn’t the repugnants have a pair and a spine and go after and bog down the O admin like these sorry bass turd dems/libs do??

  19. A free market is not acceptable to liberals, even though the Internet was cheap and grew at a rapid rate when left alone. Three things always happen when the governments meddles in anything. Competition goes down, prices go up, and the control keeps increasing until you have something that is a mess like Obamacare.

    Here is a hint, the internet was a gift to the world and every citizen, it does not belong to any government or political group and what you have is big business trying to buy votes from politicians with giving some kickbacks just like they have always done in other efforts to get their way. The problem with big business taking over the internet is they will suck up all the ban width for their own use which is what they want, sure it would enhance their business but it will destroy the internet and what it is meant to be, a gift to everyone not big business, this is all smoke and mirrors with some kickbacks included for a vote, just like the rest of the lobbyist who are always trying to buy a vote. If you want to see your internet go to hell then allow these thieves to take control of it, they can use all the fancy names they like it still is stealing the ban width that you and I all pay for, it will no longer be available to us only to the thieves in big business. Think about it, it might be the only good thing that kenyan accidentally done for the US

    • What on earth are you blathering about? The Internet was doing fine UNTIL “that kenyan” imposed “Net Neutraility,” which is just a euphemism for government control.

  21. And the Obama drama continues. America has improved measurably under President Trump. Obama is fighting for first place with Jimmy Carter as our worst president.

    • Rose Ribitzki | January 17, 2018 at 12:06 pm |

      obozo holds all-time 1st place … what do ya mean.. FIGHT??

    • TexasDeplorable1134 | January 17, 2018 at 12:08 pm |

      O wins that hands down. At least with respect to Carter, he was just naive (or incompetent) in foreign/domestic policy, military, economy . O was and still is downright EVIL to anything that resembles capitalism/democracy. And he was/is intentionally trying to dismantle it.

    • Obama has my vote for First Place … hands down he is the worst President in history.

  22. If Chuckie Schumer is for it, we should probably NOT be for it. If he’s against it, we should probably be FOR it. Wingless and sonarless dingbat lefties don’t have a clue except for what is destructive to America. MAGA!

  23. Seditionists, anarchists, leftists. All of them.

  24. These morons are incredulous. They don’t even understand what they are doing. Funny how their handlers have forced them to react. Big money behind this to get it reinstated.

  25. visionofficer | January 17, 2018 at 9:46 am |

    Where were the 22 States when the FCC seized control and put the Internet under Title II, making it a Federal Utility? This is FAKE NEWS. Under Title I, it is a free and open Information Service. Stop falling for the propaganda.

  26. I can’t think of any time in my life that government meddling in private business made something better.

  27. Sons of Liberty | January 17, 2018 at 9:20 am |

    FB and Google and Twitter complain but THEY are the ones censoring people.

  28. LOL. Good one.

  29. Anything Schumer wants cannot be good. And I live in NY.

    The “evil repeal” bwahaahaaahaaa. Do these fools not remember that there was no “net neutrality” until 2015. The lack of which sorely restricted innovation and the spread of the internet. Remember that? I don’t either. Of course they know that, they will absolutely sell their very souls to defeat or overturn anything that Trump does. But Trump remains President. MAGA.

  31. conquest915 | January 17, 2018 at 9:13 am |

    How about the Evil enactment when you instigated it you impudent clowns!

  32. MisterSandman | January 17, 2018 at 8:59 am |

    As soon as you refer to something like the repeal of net neutrality as “evil”, you’ve lost all credibility.

    Enabling terrorist regimes with pallets of cash…is evil.
    Silencing religious liberty…is evil.
    Using violence to achieve a political agenda or supporting it…is evil.
    Shutting down debate by calling anyone who disagrees with your view a racist, homophobe or xenophobe and declaring them as an “enemy of freedom”…is evil.
    Painting gun owners with a broad brush of lunacy and violence…is evil.

    The left needs to get over itself.

  33. This is such a waste of time and here is why. I spent a decade in the Telecom industry and have a better understanding of the “public network” than most. Even with net neutrality the providers will and do throttle and pick and choose winners and losers every day. It is called network engineering and there is really no way to police it. Ask Netflix what it had to pay AT&T and Verizon to make sure it’s product got “delivered” without latency to its customers. It is far too complex and ever expanding. So this is all just for show to make the public think the Fed is in control but don’t be fooled, they do not have a clue what those network engineers are doing or not doing. And their bosses understand that very much.

    • Jen Evans Colville | January 17, 2018 at 10:37 am |

      I’m confused with this topic because I knkw for a fact that Verizon and so did Time Warner slow my internet speeds down and now that I think of it it seems to have started since about 2016 is when I noticed it.

      So what people are saying will happen if “Net Neutrality ” doesnt happen is in fact happening. I know I don’t want government or any other media site having control over websites that I may or may not be able to see because the US constitution protects freedom if speech and freedom of press. This regulation should’ve never happened

      Net netrraulity and “evil” rhetoric reminds me if Chicken Little and the sky is falling. Especially now that I think about the Hawaii state of emergency” error” and Japan issue. Panic and fear should never be reason to pass legislature.

      • I think it comes down to this. The big boys do not want the Fed to make the internet/phone service a “public utility” like electricity is. That would be a game changer. “Net Neutrality” allows them to claim they under Federal regulations but all the time knowing those regulations have no teeth at all.

        • The Internet was fine until Obama imposed “Net Neutrality.” The Internet will be fine AGAIN when Net Neutrality is consigned to the marxist dustbin of history.

          • you say it was fine until NN. How did it change for you personally once NN took effect? how was it worse?

      • TexasDeplorable1134 | January 17, 2018 at 12:01 pm |

        It’s the “Armageddon” of the Internet (according to Pelosi)

  34. DCBlueBlood | January 17, 2018 at 8:51 am |

    You knew this was going to happen. Derrr.

    This is the Top Story at OANN? Nothing on Bannon being subpoenaed by Republicans & Mueller.


    • This story is actually more important.

      • DCBlueBlood | January 17, 2018 at 8:59 am |

        LOL … Boooring …. OVer at TheHill … In Touch published an interview Wednesday it conducted in 2011 with Stephanie Clifford, known in the porn industry as Stormy Daniels. In the interview, Clifford talks about a sexual encounter she says she had with Trump in 2006.

        (He was married at the time – to Melania – see cons no longer care about sexual encounters – they’re so numb from being morally busted all the time)

        “[The sex] was textbook generic,” Clifford said. “I actually don’t even know why I did it, but I do remember while we were having sex, I was like, ‘Please, don’t try to pay me.’ ”

        Clifford told the publication in 2011 that after the encounter, Trump kept saying: “ ‘I’m gonna call you, I’m gonna call you. I have to see you again. You’re amazing. We have to get you on The Apprentice.’”
        The Wall Street Journal reported last week that Trump arranged a six-figure payment to Clifford to keep her from discussing a sexual encounter with Trump.

        LOL — Democrats can now look and say Trump the sex predator. We have our Republican Bill Clinton.

        • Very old news. 2011, really? Plus, why is it always about sex with you guys? Can you think about policy and actual stuff that makes a difference in everyday Americans lives once in a while? That was rhetorical of course, because I know the answer is no.

          • DCBlueBlood | January 17, 2018 at 9:16 am |

            Very Old – Who cares. He had an Affair where’s the RepubliCON Outrage – Melania should get a divorce, Stormy was paid $130,000 the day before the election.

            No Moral Outrage — He’s your Bill Clinton is my Point!

            We have a Nixon and Now we have a Trump — LOL!

          • Yeah, because who Donald Trump has sex with is none of my business, and it’s none of yours. It’s between him and his wife. Even if he actually did pay off the woman — who is actually denying that he did any such thing — it’s still not illegal. It’s not illegal because cheating on your wife isn’t a crime, friend. You’re a liar and a phony. You’ve also got a glaring partisan double-standard.

            By the way, I love how you mindless automaton drones have disingenuously turned an obvious statement by Trump of how women “let you grab them”, strongly and obviously indicating willingness, into “Donald Trump is a sexual assaulter and predator.” He said “women just let you do it.” That means, “Go ahead, Don! Grab my p**sy!” Get it? They WANT him to do it. They’re letting him do it. There’s a big difference between that, and sexual battery. You’re all just such whimpering lying children who cannot accept anything that doesn’t go your way. That’s really what it is. Obama The Savior is gone, and you’re all in a petulant snit about it.

          • So why did this not come out during the election? Oh, wait it did, and you know what, it was determined to be BS. I guess that is why he won, amongst other reasons.

        • So, what you just ranted and raved about is a guy who likes to have sex with women? I realize that, as an obvious Democrat, masculine men who like women is sort of shocking to you, but you’re going to have to accept the fact that not all men are sissy mary fembots like Barack Obama and Michael Moore. Aren’t you ashamed of being such a phony liar? Every day, it’s one more fabricated scandal that isn’t real at all.

          Boy, you whiny infants simply cannot accept a totally fair and legitimate election’s results any longer, can you? Barack certainly taught you his Saul Alinsky tactics well. You will now only accept a national election’s results if it goes to the open-borders, anti-labor, globalist Democrats. Brotha Barack say it must be so, because of racism and sexism and misogyny and transphobia and white privilege and #MeToo and cisgenderism and patriarchy and climate change and “Hands Up Don’t Shoot” and xenophobia and income inequality and…

  35. Liberals are wussy cowards…

    • DCBlueBlood | January 17, 2018 at 8:47 am |

      With Awesome Lawyers! LMAO! Don’t have to have to use fists if you can SUE!

      • Sue for what, exactly? Lawsuits don’t move forward if a judge decides the suit has no merit. Pretty much everything Democrats do — including lawsuits — has no merit. The Democrats are a morally bankrupt and antiquated political party which serves no purpose any longer. Their only strategy now is obstruction, threats, lies, and sedition, basically.

        By the way, if you get physically attacked on the street when you’re walking with your wife (or boyfriend), responding to the attack by suing the attacker isn’t a very effective immediate response.

        • DCBlueBlood | January 17, 2018 at 9:54 am |

  39. WrathMaster | January 17, 2018 at 8:38 am |

    People in favor of net neutrality have zero idea what is really does. And that is it stops innovation, and prevents the company that paid to install the fiber, from recouping the cost of investment thereby stopping all future investment into the system.

  49. Jaime espano | January 17, 2018 at 7:56 am |

    I think I might now see what Pai’s intent was on repealing net neutrality. Currently, Net Neutrality is not a law but instead a bureaucracy regulation that can change on the whim of whoever is in charge of the FCC. Obama appointees developed Net Neutrality and Trumps appointee repealed it … so what does that tell us about how this all operates in the future?

    It can be used as a weapon and just maybe Pai, through Trump, is forcing congress to lay down a law that cannot be changed by future FCC boards. I also, highly doubt congress would vote a simple reinstatement of net neutrality and instead make changes as well. Once this gets into debates there is not telling how it will go.

    Anti censorship language? Could congress include a law that would prohibit an ISP from allowing a website that censors free speech???

    • Augie Deabler | January 17, 2018 at 8:47 am |

      A simple law prohibiting ISPs from throttling or extorting pay services should be enough to protect consumers.

      I’m not sure what you meant about websites and free speech, so I’m not sure if I’m agreeing or disagreeing, but I’ll share my opinion for sake of discussion.

      To me, a site owner should be allowed to set content parameters as broad or as narrow as they choose. It’s their “house” and nobody is being forced to enter and participate.

  53. Excellent move!!
    Keep the Internet free of ATT, Verizon, and other crooked toll both Trolls.
    These carriers are spending millions in Washington DC to bribe Congress to let them own your internet.
    The bribe takers are Pai and his fellow crooks at the FCC.
    The Freedoms of this very site are at stake, along with your smart phones access and costs.
    They will hold the Internet Hostage if they kill Internet Neutral Laws.

    • Yeah, sure thing, pal. Keep on smoking weed, and braying about vast right-wing consipracies. What lying and delusional leftoids like you don’t seem to want to talk about is that so-called “net neutrality” wasn’t in place until just over 2 years ago. The internet seemed to be fine for over 20 years up until 2015. It wasn’t “held hostage” in the least. What’s the problem with you people? Do any of you deal with reality? Is it possible to wake up one day and think clearly and not start yammering about another imagined problem?

      Get help. Stop lying. Your liberal paranoia is off the charts.

      • Gnome Sane? | January 17, 2018 at 7:49 am |

        Stinkin’ liberals are always trying to “fix” things that aren’t broken!

      • Study up. The net-neutrality rules were put into place for a purpose. You won’t believe anything I write here, so look up the information yourself.

        An excerpt from Popular Science on the subject:
        Lie: Everything was great back before 2015.

        The original net neutrality rules didn’t come out of nowhere. In fact, there were several rather important things that happened before they were put in place.

        Perhaps the biggest issue happened in 2014 when Level 3, a telecommunications company that helps ISPs connect to the Internet, found major ISPs throttling internet speeds on services like Netflix.

        In 2012, AT&T blocked users on its lower tier services from using Apple’s FaceTime video chat feature, a move that caused huge public outcry.

        When Google announced its Wallet app, mobile providers tried to block it for competing with their own solutions.

        AT&T tried blocking Skype to cut down on competition with its own services,

        Or, look to the parts of the world. KPN, a telecom company in the Netherlands, tried to apply an extra tariff on messaging apps force people into buying texting plans that worked on the cellular network. The move was blocked by the government.

        • Don’t need to “study up”, friend. The inescapable fact is that the internet was always free, no one really had any serious complaints, and everything worked fine. Everybody had plenty of bandwidth. The very few examples you mentioned are rare occurrences. Besides, throttling Netflix’s speed is actually an example of “net neutrality”! Huge Netflix has its bandwidth reduced to make room for smaller websites’ bandwidth. That’s net neutrality in a nutshell. You’re not helping your own argument. I think Netflix SHOULD get much more bandwidth than a Mom & Pop homemade jam company. So should Apple. So should YouTube.

          So-called “net neutrality” was put into place to allow the government to regulate a formerly free and open system. Obama made sure to have the internet classified as a utility, therefore the centralized oppressive government that he favors so much could completely regulate it. Popular Science is wrong. I could easily cite other sources which say everything WAS fine before 2015, but you’d simply dismiss it as right-wing propaganda.

        Question2: “Do any of you deal with reality?”
        Answer 2:No. Again, they do not know as they do not possess independent thought to correctly answer that question.

      • People understand net neutrality just fine. What’s really bothering you is that you cannot understand why there are actually people in the world who don’t want to live under totalitarianism and governmental control of everything we use and do.
