Chris Witteman, California Public Utilities Commission

Chris Witteman is currently a Senior Staff Counsel for Telecommunications & Consumer Protection with the California Public Utilities Commission, but he has worked on electronic network issues for most of his 30 year legal career. (He appears here in his individual capacity). Since joining the CPUC in 2001, he has worked on merger cases, interconnection disputes, and anything involving “the wires.” In his spare time, he has written about the constitutional dimensions of communication and information freedom. He lives in San Francisco.
Abstract: Chris Witteman is a senior litigation attorney for the California Public Utilities Commission. His talk will focus on the FCC's February 26, 2015 Open Internet Order, and provide a digestible overview of the Order's 400 pages, and what it might mean in practice for consumers, competitive carriers, and content and service providers. The talk will focus on the “No throttling,” “No paid prioritization,” and “No unreasonable interference” regulations adopted by the FCC, and how the FCC is likely (or not) to interpret and enforce those regulations. Attention will be paid to interconnection, transit, and peering issues that many believe are integral to ensuring an open Internet: how will the FCC monitor and approach those issues under the Order, and how might they do so in the future?

The talk will also examine how the Order affects the ability of state regulators to resolve both consumer complaints and interconnection disputes. The talk will conclude with a few remarks on recent state initiatives related to broadband and telecommunications, and any questions the attendees may have.

**

Mr. Witteman began his litigation career with a series of cable access cases in the late 1980s and 1990s. In 2001, he went to work for the California Public Utilities Commission, where – among many other telecommunications issues -- he has litigated interconnection cases through to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. He appears as an individual, and not as a representative of the CPUC.
