In the united states district Court in San Francisco, said the parties are requested to provide a 90-day stay of the COMMISSION to review and vote on the proposed legislation. The value of the settlement was not disclosed.

The intense back-and-forth battle between the FTC and the company has included the dismissal of the case, in 2017, on the basis that AT&T was a common carrier and, because of this, it is not subject to FTC jurisdiction.
