The U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC circuit denied the Federal Communications Commission's request to hold appeals of its network neutrality rules in abeyance until it acted on a petition to reconsider the rule. That will allow the challenge to the rules to proceed to trial, with the next step expected to be the setting of a brief schedule. While the court will not wait for the FCC to decide whether it was correct to provide the specialized services carve-out, it did refer the FCC's petition to dismiss the case to the three-judge panel scheduled to hear argument.
