President Donald Trump's administration asked the U.S. Supreme Court to let him end deportation protections for young undocumented immigrants, urging the justices to take the unusual step of bypassing federal appeals courts to get the case resolved by next summer. But, like a recent Third Circuit decision that bolstered the Pai/Trump version, it remains just one factor in a larger fight over the rules that dictate internet access in the United States.

According to the Supreme Court announcement today, Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Neil Gorsuch "would grant the petitions, vacate the judgment of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit [which upheld the FCC's net neutrality order], and remand to that court with instructions to dismiss the cases as moot".

Attorney General Jeff Sessions now wants the nation's highest court to combine three cases about DACA into a single ruling, because each case makes the same basic arguments about the repeal.

The court on Monday rejected appeals from the telecommunications industry seeking to throw out a lower court ruling in favor of the "net neutrality" rules. They have not been in effect since June.

Five arrested over 'disrespectful' Grenfell Tower model bonfire
The footage depicts a cardboard effigy of Grenfell Tower - complete with figures at the windows - being burnt. London Mayor Sadiq Khan attacked the video on Twitter, saying: "I utterly condemn this sickening video".

Two conservative justices - Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh - "took no part in the consideration or decision of these petitions", the court announced. The administration told the appeals court last month that if it didn't rule by October 31, the government would go directly to the Supreme Court to seek resolution during the current nine-month term. USTelecom said it would "continue to support" the repeal "from challenges in Washington, D.C. and state capitals".

The Federal Communications Commission voted a year ago to revoke those rules. "It actually petitioned the Supreme Court to erase history and wipe out an earlier court decision upholding open internet policies". In his ruling on U.S. Telecom Association, Kavanaugh called net neutrality "unlawful" as the 1934 Communications Act "does not supply clear congressional authorization for the FCC to impose common carrier regulation" on internet service providers (ISPs).
