California Halts Enforcement of Net Neutrality Law, Awaits Final Court Decision
Last Friday, a federal judge approved an agreement between the US Justice Department, the State of California, and trade groups representing major providers to delay the implementation of the state’s net neutrality law.
It is said that the agreement will likely put on hold California’s law for a year or longer while waiting for the court’s final decision on the administration’s decision to overturn the 2015 Obama-era open internet rules.
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said the decision should put them in the best position to uphold net neutrality for some 40 million Californians. He added that they will continue to fight the government’s attempt to repeal net neutrality in the D.C. Circuit Court while defending California’s own net neutrality law.
