IN THE NEWS: NET NEUTRALITY - JUSTICE DEPARTMENT
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The move by California to ensure net neutrality is being challenged by the federal government. The Department of Justice has filed suit to try to block the new state law, which would take effect Jan. 1. California has passed a net neutrality measure that would create the toughest law in the land aimed at keeping internet providers from favoring some content over others. Advocates for net neutrality hope the California law could either push other states to pass similar measures — or nudge Congress toward passing national rules about how the internet deals with various kinds of content.

SEATTLE (AP) — The co-founder of Microsoft is again battling cancer. Paul Allen says the cancer he was treated for in 2009 has returned. In a tweet, Allen says he just learned about the return of his non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma — and plans to fight it aggressively. Allen notes there have been advances in medicine since he overcame the disease nearly a decade ago. And he says his doctors are optimistic he can take advantage of some of the latest therapies. Allen is a billionaire — and is also the owner of the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks.
