On October 2, 2023, the Supreme Court denied a petition by NetChoice, LLC to review an Eleventh Circuit decision mostly affirming an injunction against Florida’s new social media law, SB7072. Although the Court denied NetChoice’s petition here, it granted two other petitions—one by Florida in this case and another by NetChoice concerning a similar law in Texas. In doing so, the Court agreed to decide whether Florida’s and Texas’s compelled-speech requirements violate the First Amendment. As WLF’s brief explained, there is no logical limit to government intrusion into how platforms decide what speech to disseminate if Texas’s and Florida’s laws are upheld. WLF joined TechFreedom’s amicus brief, which was prepared in house by Corbin K. Barthold and Berin Szóka, the Supreme Court invited the Solicitor General of the U.S. to file a brief representing the views of the federal government on NetChoice’s petition for certiorari.
