Top legal experts scoffed at the argument and said the Florida law’s restrictions on social media companies was clearly unconstitutional. The law was challenged by NetChoice LLC and the Computer & Communications Industry Association, trade associations of technology companies, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida.

NetChoice’s vice president and general counsel, Carl Szavbo, said he expects Florida’s law will never take effect and his group will prevail in court. The First Amendment encourages a private business to make decisions whether they will host certain speech or users, he said.
