WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A U.S. Court of Appeals on Wednesday said it would not reconsider its decision in January to uphold California’s net neutrality law.
A three-judge panel of the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in January said a 2017 decision by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to reverse federal internet protections could not bar state action, rejecting a challenge from telecom and broad industry groups to block California’s net neutrality law. The appeals court on Wednesday rejected a petition for a rehearing by the full court.
