WASHINGTON - Sept. 17, 2018 - PRLog -- The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit today accepted a "Friend of the Court" brief filed by William Michael Cunningham in Mozilla Corporation vs. the Federal Communications Commission. The case, 18-cv-1051, challenges the Federal Communications Commission's reclassification of "broadband Internet access service as an 'information service,' and mobile broadband Internet access service as a 'private mobile service,'" and, therefore not subject to public interest rules and regulations.

Mr. Cunningham's brief focuses on the economic impact public policies have on minority communities, specifically African American communities. He submitted the brief to highlight the way internet access issues impact African American and minority communities.

The brief concludes that the FCC's Order will lower income for African Americans, given increasing cost of service and this group's initial lower (than non-African Americans) levels of disposable income.

In his Friend of the Court brief, Mr Cunningham shows that benefit claims made by the FCC are grossly overstated and notes that, in this sense, the FCC exhibits the same ruinous ethical standards that led to the financial crisis of 2008.
