SCOTUS Won’t Hear Net Neutrality Case

The Supreme Court on Monday said it wouldn’t hear challenges to net neutrality rules. The rules, first put into place by the Obama administration, require all internet service providers to treat all online traffic the same, regardless of whether a website or online service wanted to pay more to have their content delivered faster. Several broadband companies had sued, asking the high court to consider the 2015 rules upheld by a D.C. appeals court. The court said no. But the Trump administration cancelled those Obama-era rules, meaning the whole thing is functionally a moot point.
