"Net Neutrality" Ripped by Verizon

Says lawsuit aimed at reining-in out-of-control regulators


Verizon today renewed its criticisms of the Obama administration's Net neutrality rules, saying its lawsuit seeking to overturn them will rein in an out-of-control federal agency.

The company's lawsuit is about "the importance of restraint on the regulatory authority in the Internet space," said Tom Tauke, Verizon's executive vice president for public affairs. "We believe that is critical—and this battle is really a battle about that kind of restraint."
