"On Friday afternoon, Verizon filed its expected challenge to the FCC's network neutrality rules, suing in federal court to stop them. Verizon claims that the agency has no authority to issue rules affecting the Internet. ... Verizon's lawsuit claims the rules, which largely exempt wireless networks, are 'arbitrary' and 'capricious' -- the same charges recently brought by net neutrality supporters arguing that the FCC improperly let the wireless industry off the hook."
