Trump Administration Asks Supreme Court to Vacate Net Neutrality Ruling

The Trump administration asked the U.S. Supreme Court to vacate a 2016 appeals court ruling that had upheld Obama era “net neutrality” rules that barred internet service providers from blocking, throttling or prioritizing content. The request was made even though the Federal Communications Commission voted along party lines to toss out the 2015 rules late last year, rendering the fight over their legality moot.
