CLIENT SPOTLIGHT: Grillo's Pickles

If you haven't been to the Grillo's Pickles website, you should. There, you'll find the fantastic story of how this company began. We've copied part of it here to save you a click.

Grillo's Pickles began with a pickle cart, just a small wooden stand in downtown Boston, where Travis Grillo and his friends would sell two spears for one dollar. Travis would make the pickles by night using his family's 100-year old recipe - one he'd memorized from making pickles every summer as a kid. In the morning, Travis would bike to the Boston Common and set up the cart with his buddies. They'd hang out all day, urging people to try the simple Grillo family pickle. It was a small business but Travis worked hard for it. He made more pickles, biked more miles, and slept less hours than he ever had before.

        States Follow Through With Commitment to Protect Net Neutrality
        March 6, 2018

        Paige V. Schroeder

        As we discussed in our January blog, states are taking the protection of net neutrality into their own hands. This week Washington's Governor Jay Inslee signed the first state net neutrality bill to prevent internet service providers from blocking websites or charging more for faster delivery of certain sites, which is now permissible under the Federal Communication Commission's recent order repealing the rules prohibiting paid preferences, throttling, and blocking that were adopted under President Obama.

        The Federal Communications Commission's ("FCC") repeal of net neutrality in December was certainly not the final word on the matter. The FCC's decision to roll back Obama-era rules prohibiting paid preferences, throttling and blocking in the order captioned Restoring Internet Freedom (the "Order"), which became final on January 4, is currently under attack on multiple fronts and others are sure to come.

        As reported in our last blog post, it had been long speculated, with increasing intensity, that T-Mobile and Sprint were close to announcing a merger between the two companies. However, on Saturday, T-Mobile and Sprint announced that the rumored merger was off. This merger would have been consistent with the trend towards deregulating the telecommunications industry that we have been expecting under the new administration.
