The nation's largest broadband industry lobby groups have sued Vermont to stop a state law that requires ISPs to follow net neutrality principles in order to qualify for government contracts. The broadband industry lawsuit asks the court to rule that both the Vermont law and executive order are preempted by federal law. The lobby groups point to the Federal Communications Commission repeal of US-wide net neutrality rules, because the FCC order claims the authority to preempt state net neutrality laws. The state law is also preempted because of "the inherently interstate nature" of broadband, the complaint said. The US Department of Justice also sued California to stop its net neutrality law.
