NTUF's Taxpayer Defense Center Reacts to NetChoice Decision

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States decided the cases of Moody v. NetChoice and NetChoice v. Paxton in a unanimous decision. The National Taxpayers Union Foundation (NTUF)’s amicus brief in the case questioned the constitutionality of the laws in Texas and Florida requiring social media companies and websites to moderate their content.

Senior Attorney at NTUF's Taxpayer Defense Center and author of NTUF's brief, Tyler Martinez said:

The majority rightly recognizes that Florida and Texas laws are more sweeping than the sponsors suggest. We wish they gave the lower courts more direction as they now consider the exact contours of how it will apply beyond social media. It's good news for the First Amendment that the majority cites Tornillo as the standard rule for such cases. But a case like PruneYard should be overruled, not cited, and their not doing so will continue to cause confusion.
