In blow to DeSantis, conservative federal court rules against social media censorship law

Carl Szabo, Vice President and General Counsel of NetChoice, predicted that a similar law passed in Texas would soon meet a similar fate.

“The First Amendment protects platforms and their right to moderate content as they see fit—and the government can’t force them to host content they don’t want.” said Szabo. “This makes it even more likely that the U.S. Supreme Court will overturn the 5th Circuit’s split decision on the similar Texas law.”
