WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Department of Justice on Monday withdrew its legal challenge to the state of California’s net neutrality law in 2018 after the Trump administration asked a court to block it.

Under then-President Donald Trump, the Justice Department argued that federal law provides state law to prohibit Internet service providers from blocking or restricting traffic or offering paid fast lanes. California law would reintroduce these bans in the state. A separate challenge to the California net neutrality law by the industry is still pending.
