The United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit has denied the FCC’s motion to postpone oral arguments in the challenge to the agency’s Restoring Internet Freedom (RIF) order.  In a previous filing the FCC cited that the lapse in its funding as well as the Department of Justice were the reasons why the arguments should be postponed.  The Court stated that oral argument is still scheduled for February 1, 2019.  The Court’s website states that oral arguments on the calendar for the month of January and February will go on as scheduled in spite of the government shutdown.
