AG To Sue To Stop Rollback Of Net Neutrality
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says he will lead a multi-state lawsuit to stop the illegal rollback of net neutrality.
Schneiderman says the FCC's vote to rip apart net neutrality is a blow to New York consumers and to everyone who cares about a free and open internet.
"The FCC just gave Big Telecom an early Chrstmas present by giving internet service providers yet another way to put corporate profits over consumers." said Schneiderman.
The AG's Office has been investigating a flood of fake comments submitted during the net neutrality comment process.
The Attorney General's latest analysis shows that two million comments stole the identities of real Americans, including over 100,000 from New York.
Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi is joining Schneiderman’s call for a lawsuit.
In a letter to Schneiderman, Brindisi called the FCC's decision "a sad moment for American consumers."
