The Corner

Good Move by Ted Olson

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down FCC telecom regulations. The administration has decided not to appeal. There are powerful corporate interests on both sides of the debate about these regulations, and the administration has tried to straddle it–at best. This decision is an unexpected switch in its course. I hope that it will bring a lot of the litigation to a close and impart some (de)regulatory stability to a field that sorely needs it. Expect some major squealing from AT&T.
