Florida urges judge to reject tech industry arguments against crackdown on social media

The industry groups NetChoice and the Computer & Communications Industry Association filed a lawsuit May 27 and are seeking the preliminary injunction, contending that the law would violate First Amendment rights and harm companies’ efforts to moderate content.

But the filing late Monday by the state’s attorneys tried to flip the First Amendment argument, contending that social-media platforms engage in censorship and violate speech rights.
