Appeals Court Sets Date for Net Neutrality Case

The federal appeals court in Washington set September 9 as the date for oral arguments in the so-called net neutrality case that could be seminal for federal regulation of Internet traffic. The highly anticipated hearings, originally expected to take place this past spring, will pit Verizon Communications Inc against the Federal Communications Commission as the biggest U.S. wireless provider challenges the FCC's order that guides how Internet service providers manage their networks.
