Federal judge puts social media crackdown law on hold

The lawsuit, filed jointly by NetChoice and CCIA, seeks to overturn the law on several grounds, including that it interferes with a media platform’s editorial judgment, compels speech, and prohibits speech in violation of the first amendment.

“This order protects private businesses against the State’s demand that social media carry user posts that are against their community standards, said Steve DelBianco, President of NetChoice. “Even better, it lets social media provide high-quality services to their users while keeping them safe from the worst content posted by irresponsible users.”
