Mark your calendar for September 9, when the D.C. Circuit will finally hear oral arguments in Verizon’s challenge to the FCC’s Open Internet Order—twenty months after Verizon first filed its challenge.
Join TechFreedom and the International Center for Law & Economics for a 12:00 p.m. luncheon discussion featuring a panel of legal experts discussing the oral arguments, which begin around 9:50 a.m. at the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. Details on panelists will follow. The event will be live streamed.
Moderated by Matt Brill, Partner at Latham & Watkins, our diverse panel of legal experts will recap the arguments, assess how the court might decide the case, and discuss what options might be available to the FCC as well as antitrust agencies to address net neutrality concerns. The panel will feature:
- Fred Campbell, Competitive Enterprise Institute's Communications Liberty and Innovation Project (analysis)
- Markham Erickson, Steptoe & Johnson LLP (Intervenors’ brief)
- Robert McDowell, Hudson Institute (dissent)
- Sherwin Siy, Public Knowledge (Intervenors’ brief)
- Berin Szoka, TechFreedom (amicus brief)
TechFreedom’s amicus brief in the case explains why the court should strike down the Open Internet Order on First Amendment, Fifth Amendment, statutory and procedural grounds.
