FCC Seeks to Dismiss Petitions for Review of Restoring Internet Freedom Order
The Federal Communications Commission filed three motions with the District of Columbia, First, and Ninth Circuit Courts on February 9, 2018, seeking to dismiss petitions for review of the Restoring Internet Freedom Order filed by New America Foundation’s Open Technology Institute (and consolidated cases), the County of Santa Clara, et al. and Free Press. The FCC asserted the petitions are premature because the Order results from a rulemaking proceeding and a summary of the Order and the text of the amended rules have not yet been published in the Federal Register.
