Sept 9, 2013 – 12:00pm to 1:30pm
TechFreedom and the International Center for Law & Economics are pleased to announce that former FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell will join our luncheon panel on September 9 discussing that morning’s oral arguments in Verizon’s challenge to the FCC’s Open Internet Order. In 2010, McDowell authored a scathing and lengthy dissent from the Order.
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)
Monday, September 9, 2013
Registration opens at 11:45; lunch is served at noon; the event and livestream begin at 12:30.
Space is limited so RSVP now. A livestream of the event will be available on this page. You can follow the conversation on Twitter on the #NetNeutrality hashtag. 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.
