Super Speedy DC Circuit

The DC Circuit's decision late this afternoon announcing it would take jurisdiction over the appeal of the FCC's net neutrality order is good news for net neutrality opponents -- like myself. Obviously, this doesn't necessarily mean that the court will vacate the FCC's order. But the court, having slapped down the agency only a year ago for exceeding its authority with respect to net neutrality, must have been especially eager to grab hold of this case.

I don't think the net neuters will be happy about this development.
