Comments of the International Center for Law & Economics, In the Matter of Accelerating Wireline Broadband Deployment by Removing Barriers to Infrastructure Investment

We wish to highlight two primary concerns: that decisions by pole owners to delay maintenance and shift costs onto attachers are a significant impediment to deployment, and that there is a pressing need for the Commission to create an expedited process to resolve these disputes.

ICLE Amicus Brief in ACA Connects et al v Beccera

ICLE supports the appeal filed by ACA Connects et al. seeking review of the district court’s denial of a preliminary injunction. As detailed herein, the district court failed to consider economic and empirical realities that militate in favor of finding irreparable harm to the Appellants’ members. Moreover, the same economic and empirical realities tip the balance of equities in favor of the Appellants, and establish that the public interest is in granting a preliminary injunction against enforcement of the California Internet Consumer Protection and Net Neutrality Act of 2018.
