feb 7, 2018: 9:45 a.m. - 10:35 a.m.

The FCC's partisan vote to end net neutrality has already drawn a number of legal challenges. Congress is poised to disapprove the FCC’s repeal through the Congressional Review Act, and states have begun to fill the gap with their own net neutrality requirements.  What are the key questions the courts will ask? What evidence is in the FCC record that could impact the direction of the courts?  When can we expect Congress to act, and will state actions make a difference?  This conversation with Markham Erickson, INCOMPAS’ lead attorney in the challenge to the FCC’s repeal, will provide an in depth look at the legal strategies and arguments ahead.
