NetChoice & CCIA v. Moody

See the drop down menus below for a comprehensive list of resources and legal documents.

After Gov. DeSantis signed SB 7072 into law in Florida, NetChoice and CCIA filed suit to enjoin and invalidate the law and defend the First Amendment and other constitutional rights of private businesses on May 27 2021.

The NetChoice & CCIA complaint explained:

Because of the immediate unconstitutional harm SB 7072 would do if it were allowed to take effect, NetChoice and CCIA filed for preliminary injunction on June 4, 2021, and it was granted June 30, 2021.

The State of Florida appealed NetChoice and CCIA’s Preliminary Injunction granted by the District Court, and on May 23, 2022, the 11th Circuit upheld the District Court’s injunction on the law.

On September 21, 2022, the State of Florida filed a petition for certiorari with the U.S. Supreme Court to determine whether its social media law is constitutional.

On October 24, 2022, NetChoice and CCIA filed our response brief to Florida’s petition for certiorari and cross-petition for certiorari with the U.S. Supreme Court, asking the Court to review in full the Eleventh Circuit’s opinion on SB 7072. It is currently pending the Court’s review.
