Florida’s first-in-the-nation social media law runs afoul of free speech right, judge rules

NetChoice, an online business coalition, and the Computer and Communications Industry Association sued to block the new law, which DeSantis signed last month.

“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.”
