US Supreme Court ends fight over Obama-era net neutrality rules

The day before congressional elections in which Trump's anti-immigration rhetoric has taken center stage, the administration urged the justices to throw out three lower court rulings that blocked Trump's plan to wind down the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh recused themselves from the case.
The brief court order noted that three of the court's conservative justices, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch, would have thrown out the appeals court decision. The rules allowed the federal government to regulate high-speed internet delivery as a utility, like phone service.
"The Supreme Court's decision is push-back against FCC Chairman Pai's effort to get rid of net neutrality". Other challenges to DACA repeal efforts are now before appeals courts in NY and Washington, D.C.
The other two cases that are pending now in two other U.S. Courts of Appeals - one in the Second Circuit in New York City and one in the District of Columbia Circuit in Washington, D.C. Neither of those appeals courts has held a hearing on the government's appeal. "To protect this institution from being implicated in the Trump administration's electoral ploy, the Supreme Court should reject the administration's request".
The reason Big Cable persisted in that challenge - even after the rules were struck down by Pai's FCC - is because it fears the decision will act as a legal precedent against the new rules when yet another lawsuit is heard.
The Supreme Court on Monday refused to vacate several court rulings that supported the Obama-era Federal Communications Commissions' net neutrality regulations, Reuters reports. The D.C. Circuit Court found that the FCC was well within its authority to adopt net neutrality rules that prevented Internet service companies from blocking, throttling, or otherwise degrading traffic. They know their repeal of net neutrality was so filled with procedural missteps and outright fraud that they're anxious it will be overturned by next year's net neutrality lawsuits, opening arguments for which begin in February.
The appeal sought to challenge a lower court ruling that upheld Obama-era net neutrality rules that banned Internet service providers from giving preferential treatment to certain websites, CNBC reported. It was opposed by internet companies like Facebook Inc, Amazon.com Inc and Alphabet Inc, which have said the repeal could lead to higher costs.
