Congress

Court Rejects Effort To Have Comcast Panel Hear Verizon Challenge

February 2, 2011

The U.S. District Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Wednesday turned down Verizon's request to have the same panel that ruled in favor of Comcast's challenge to the Federal Communications Commission's net neutrality enforcement action take up Verizon's lawsuit against the agency's latest action on the issue.

The D.C. appeals court panel, which Verizon wanted to hear its challenge filed last month to the FCC's December net neutrality order, ruled last year that the commission had overstepped its authority when it tried to sanction Comcast for violating the agency' network neutrality principles.

The court Wednesday denied Verizon's request without explanation. The court has not taken any action on the merits of Verizon's challenge to the FCC network neutrality order. Verizon claimed in its challenge that the FCC once again overstepped the authority provided by Congress by trying to impose network neutrality rules on broadband providers.

"We're pleased with the Court's swift action and look forward to the dismissal of the other part of Verizon's request," Public Knowledge said in a statement.
