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.

CLIENT SPOTLIGHT: Luca + Danni

Fred and Danny Magnanimi grew up watching their father create beautiful, handcrafted jewelry in the family's Cranston, RI jewelry manufacturing business.

        States Follow Through With Commitment to Protect Net Neutrality

        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 blocking from 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.  A number of other states have proposed similar legislation, and governors in New York and Montana have signed executive actions with prohibiting such conduct.  In addition, twenty-three states, including Massachusetts and Rhode Island, have filed of a petition for protective review challenging the repeal of net neutrality.  

        The success of these state efforts remains to be seen as any laws enacted by the states and executive actions taken will unquestionably end up being litigated.  In its order repealing net neutrality, the FCC explicitly stated that the states could not create their own rules as only the FCC has authority to oversee broadband internet services given its interstate nature.  There are also sure to be challenges by internet service providers in favor of the repeal of the net neutrality rules, as they (and the FCC) believe the repeal will foster innovation and modernization and ultimately benefit consumers.

        As we predicted, net neutrality remains a contentious issue in 2018—stay tuned for further developments.
