Tech Groups File Lawsuit Against New Florida Law Aimed at Big Tech Censorship

NetChoice and the Computer and Communications Industry Association—internet lobbying groups including Facebook, Twitter, and Google—filed suit against the law.

“We cannot stand idly by as Florida’s lawmakers push unconstitutional bills into law that bring us closer to state-run media and a state-run internet,” NetChoice Vice President Carl Szabo said.

“The First Amendment protects social media platforms’ right to host and moderate content as they see fit for their business models and users.”

“By weakening the First Amendment rights of some, Florida weakens the First Amendment rights of all,” Szabo said, according to Politico.
