Where Lawyers Exist, There Are Lawsuits
Even if the decision had gone the other way, there would be lawsuits aplenty, that's what some law firms specialize in. A year or two before Y2K, lawyers started hanging around banking conference, taking note about any advice given in anticipation of filing lawsuits if advice was wrong. A presenter at a Faulkner & Gray conference was the first I heard bring this up, and from then on, heard nothing but "this is what some companies are doing" and other such wording to avoid potential lawsuits.

Re: Front?
The problem is that for some of us, Net Neutrality conjecture has been going on for more than a decade, whereas the Bush v Clinton speculation is new...oh wait.

Re: Front?
Carol, conjecturing is the BEST PART of following politics. 

Next you're going to tell me it's too early to start conjecturing about next year's Presidential election.

Welcome to Net Neutrality Carol "Sleeping Beuty" Wilson or is it more likely to be "Rip Van Winkle"?

Re: Front?
Wake me up when it's over - everything between  now and then is posturing. These are important issues to  the industry, to be sure, but until it reaches some definitive stage, the conjuncture is going to make us all nuts.

Re: Front?
When I saw this during my morning reviews, I was frankly shocked that it took the industry lobbysts that long to file the lawsuits as they did.    I won't be surprised if it ends up in the Supreme Court.

Re: Front?
Mitch,

Having Trade Associations do it will not impact the Commissioners unless they want it to.  Essentially they are politicians who know how their bread is buttered.  They will be upset with anyone that sues them.  When I was with AFC we had to change legal councils (aka our lobbyists) that dealt with the FCC because the ones we had represented BellSouth and had won in court.

Front?
I wonder whether being fronted by a trade association will really reduce emnity from the FCC? Surely that's pretty transparent.
