“‘It is going to be insanely complicated,’ Fred Campbell, director of the free-market think tank Tech Knowledge and the former head of the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau at the FCC, said in an interview, noting that any efforts to overturn the order will first face intense public scrutiny and then be challenged in court.

That said, Campbell does see ‘options for overturning the Title II approach that I believe would survive court scrutiny.’ In particular, he would like to see Pai undo the classification of broadband as a Title II telecommunications service while still pursuing deliberate and surgical enforcement of net neutrality.”
