On December 14, 2017, in the wake of the decision to change current net neutrality regulations, the attorneys general of Massachusetts, New York and Washington state announced their intention to sue the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”).

Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey argued in a public statement, regarding her intention to sue the FCC, that she will be “suing to stand up for the free exchange of ideas and to keep the American people in control of internet access.” New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman argues that the FCC’s decision to repeal net neutrality will seriously affect how New York state residents access the internet. Schneiderman accuses the FCC of putting the profits of large telecom companies over the wellbeing of American consumers by allowing internet providers the power to restrict consumers from obtaining information.
