supreme court fcc net neutrality

The US Supreme Court on Thursday granted a request from NCTA, AT&T, ACA and others for more time to appeal the FCC’s 2015 Open Internet order. They now have until Sept. 28 to file a petition with the court.

The groups asked for a 60-day extension to petition the court to hear their objections to Title II classification and other aspects of the net neutrality rules. On May 1, the DC Court of Appeals rejected their request to rehear the case, starting a 90-day clock to petition SCOTUS.

The petitioners said they needed extra time because of the FCC’s current rulemaking that would reclassify ISPs as information services. “Depending on how the Commission responds to the comments, the rulemaking has the potential to moot applicants’ challenges to the Title II Order in whole or in part and to alter the relief that applicants may seek in their petitions,” the groups wrote in their petition for additional time.
