A group of 22 state attorneys general has sued to block the Federal Communications Commission’s repeal of net-neutrality rules. These rules barred companies like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon from interfering with internet traffic and favoring their own sites and apps. Pai’s push to undo them inspired both street and online protests in defense of the Obama-era rules. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin, File)
