NetChoice Grateful to Defend the First Amendment at the Supreme Court

WASHINGTON—Today, NetChoice and the Computer & Communications Industry Association (CCIA) had oral arguments in our landmark cases that will have major implications for the future of the First Amendment online, NetChoice & CCIA v. Paxton and Moody v. NetChoice & CCIA

NetChoice is grateful we had the opportunity to defend the First Amendment at the U.S. Supreme Court.

“We’re here today because the First Amendment—and the freedom on and offline it protects—are worth fighting for,” said Chris Marchese, Director of the NetChoice Litigation Center. “Our cases serve as a reminder that the United States is an exceptional country. The First Amendment not only protects free speech, free expression, and free thought from government interference. It does so unapologetically.”

Marchese continued: “Just as the government couldn’t force Benjamin Franklin to publish its preferred messages in his newspapers, Florida and Texas can’t force websites to curate, display, and spread their preferred content. The First Amendment protects us and our speech from government encroachment—not the other way around. We are confident the Supreme Court will agree.”

A full recording of NetChoice & CCIA’s press conference is available here and below, and transcripts of the arguments should be available sometime tomorrow on the Supreme Court’s website at this link
