WASHINGTON (Reuters) - AT&T Inc and telecommunications trade groups on Wednesday asked a federal appeals court to block U.S. Federal Communications Commission Internet traffic regulations while litigation continues.

In a joint filing in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, AT&T, the United States Telecom Association and others said a stay was warranted because they are likely to win the challenge to the so-called “net neutrality” rules.
