Communications Daily Quotes Richard B. Newman on 9th Circuit Decision to Review FTC Authority in Data Throttling Matter

On May 11, 2017, Communications Daily quoted Richard B. Newman about the 9th Circuit decision to review en banc the FTC’s appeal ruling that threw out the Commission’s case against AT&T Mobility inadequately informed customers of its alleged data throttling practices.

Mr. Newman’s quote in the article expressed that if the prior ruling that the FTC does not have authority over ISPs stands, current efforts to repeal FCC net neutrality rules could be defeated.
