FCC asks court to dismiss challenges to new net neutrality regulations

The FCC is asking a federal appeals court to dismiss challenges from Verizon Communications and Metro PCS to its new net neutrality regulations. Verizon and Metro PCS argue the commission is exceeding its legal authority, and are challenging the regulations in the same court, the federal appeals court in the District of Columbia, that ruled the FCC didn't have the authority to punish Comcast for discriminating against file-sharing traffic on its network. In requesting the dismissal, the FCC is arguing that Verizon and Metro PCS have filed their challenges too early since the new rules have yet to be published in the federal register. Article
