Supreme Court Won't Consider Obama-Era Net Neutrality Rules 11/06/2018

The Trump administration is asking the Supreme Court to fast-track cases on the president's decision to end a program that shields young immigrants from deportation.

The federal government has asked the Supreme Court to take up two related questions.

DACA extends temporary legal status to approximately 700,000 migrants, and allows them to obtain work permits.

The administration is contesting three different district court rulings from judges in California, New York and the District of Columbia that told the administration to continue processing renewals of existing DACA applications while litigation over the legality of Trump's action is resolved.

"It is assumed that the Court of Appeals will proceed expeditiously to decide this case", the Supreme Court's February order read.

The Trump administration and internet service providers had asked justices to wipe away a ruling that had temporarily preserved the Obama-era net neutrality regulations.

The Ninth Circuit heard oral arguments in the case pending before it in May but has not yet issued a ruling.

That is the lead case that the Administration appealed to the Justices on Monday.

However, the court's choice reveals how three conservative judges would rule against prior precedent on net neutrality, with Kavanaugh likely following along based on his prior opinion on the matter. That suit, which is also pending before the D.C. Circuit, is quickly becoming the center of the legal battle over net neutrality now, with the Supreme Court deciding not to hear its net neutrality case.

Today's Supreme Court decision is good news for supporters of net neutrality because it means that the DC Circuit court's "previous decision upholding both the FCC's classification of broadband as a telecommunications service, and its rules prohibiting broadband providers from blocking or degrading Internet content, remains in place", senior counsel John Bergmayer of consumer advocacy group Public Knowledge said. Instead of providing a policy explanation for withdrawing DACA, the Trump administration claims that the program was always illegal.

"This is the second time the Trump administration has attempted to shortcut the normal appellate process by seeking Supreme Court review prior to any decision by the Courts of Appeals", Davidson said.

"The last administration started DACA without a mandate or even an authorization from Congress or the courts; this administration can therefore end DACA at any time", Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement Monday night.
