TechFreedom to Host Panel Discussion 8/2

WASHINGTON D.C. — In June, a three-judge panel in the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the FCC’s 2015 Open Internet Order (OIO), giving the agency broad authority to regulate broadband service by reclassifying it under Title II. But this is only the next step in what will likely be a long legal process to challenge the OIO. Petitions for en banc review by the full D.C. Circuit must be filed by July 29, and as Intervenor in the case against the FCC, TechFreedom will be leading the charge.

Join TechFreedom, George Washington Institute of Public Policy, and the Open Technology Institute on August 2 for a panel discussion of the case in D.C. and by livestream. Why did the court rule the way it did? What did the dissent say? What are the arguments on appeal, and how likely are the D.C. Circuit and Supreme Court to strike down the Order? How long will this all take, and what does it mean for the future of the Internet?

When: Tuesday, August 2, at 1:30 p.m.

Where: Marvin Center, George Washington University
