    Agency Jurisdiction in the Wake of the Ninth Circuit's FTC v. AT&T Mobility Decision

    1 PM EDT

    In late August 2016, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit held that "common carriers" are exempt from FTC jurisdiction based on their status as common carriers, even for activities that are not common carrier services regulated by the FCC or other agencies. AT&T's court victory had the immediate effect of helping the carrier avoid punishment for throttling the Internet connections of customers with unlimited data plans. But the decision could also have a long-term impact on the FTC's ability to enforce consumer protection laws. Our panel of experts will discuss the decision, its implications, and the current scope of the FTC's jurisdiction.
