Chair’s Column

By Mark C. Darrell

The Spring issue of Infrastructure presents two articles that impact those of us who are practicing infrastructure lawyers. The first article addresses the intersection of government regulation and technological advancement and the age-old question of whether markets, and ultimately consumers, are served better by continued regulation or deregulation. Chair-Elect Chris Binnig, Tyson Covey, and Kara Gibney discuss a recent court decision affirming a Federal Communications Commission order in which the FCC withdrew from its regulation of business data services (those high-speed, high-capacity, point-to-point connections between larger customers and their long-distance telecommunications service providers over which those business customers send and receive long-distance telecommunications traffic). The second article, by Jay Range, discusses the latest Supreme Court decisions on arbitration provisions in employment agreements.
