NetChoice Glad to See Fifth Circuit Hold Texas HB 20 from Going into Effect Until SCOTUS Hearing

NEW ORLEANS, La.—Today, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals approved NetChoice and the Computer and Communications Industry Association (CCIA)’s unopposed motion to stay Texas HB 20 pending a ruling on a future petition of certiorari from the U.S. Supreme Court in our case, NetChoice & CCIA v. Paxton

Now granted, HB 20 will stay enjoined as the case proceeds through the courts.

“Because Texas HB 20 would bury the internet in vile content, we’re relieved that it will remain enjoined until the case can be heard by the Supreme Court,” said Chris Marchese, NetChoice Counsel. “We remain confident that the law will ultimately be struck down as unconstitutional.”
