Before the bill had passed the state legislature and been sign by the Governor, there were lobbyist who were claiming that the Law was illegal under federal regulations. So now we see the internet providers fighting the Law in both State and Federal Court.

Remember when the argument was that the FCC did not have the authority to enact net neutrality laws? Now they claim the authority to ban net neutrality laws.

Time to start investing in the California National Guard

Not only did the administration almost instantly sue the state of California over their law, but they did so in the name of “protecting consumers”.

Because I’m sure that consumers are really the major beneficiaries of a non-neutral Internet.
