NY attorney general Eric Schneiderman, who is leading the multi-state lawsuit, said it is illegal for the FCC to make "arbitrary and capricious" changes to policies like net neutrality.

Likewise, Public Knowledge, a public interest group with a focus on telecommunication policy and internet law, filed a protective petition in DC on Tuesday.

The fact sheet and Chairman Pai's commentary also get a few hits in regarding the recent decision to roll back the 2015 net neutrality rules, but they aren't very substantial. "It has pushed technology forward in more ways than one".
