Injunction Secures Internet Access for Nonprofits

Jonathan Handler was quoted in an article, "Injunction Secures Internet Access for Nonprofits" in the Fairfield County Business Journal. In the article, Handler describes the ongoing effort by Day Pitney to prevent Sprint Corporation from shutting off broadband access to more than 300,000 low-income and disadvantaged users plus schools, libraries, and other non-profits across the country. The Massachusetts Superior Court granted a 90-day preliminary injunction requiring Sprint to continue to provide broadband service, among other pre-judgment relief. Handler states "there is a notion out there that we're all out there at high speed. But large portions of the population, for financial reasons, are not." Those who rely on the services of the nonprofits the firm represents would be at "a real disadvantage" if broadband does not remain available.
