Free Expression

CDT Files in Response to the Government’s Motion to Dismiss in our Executive Order Litigation

The Center for Democracy and Technology filed this case against the President’s Executive Order, attacking both the constitutionally protected right of social media services to moderate content on their platforms, which is especially important in combating information and voter suppression in an election year, and users’ rights to access information and services that operate free from government coercion.

The Government asked the Court to dismiss the case on procedural grounds, without a single word about the important constitutional issues at stake. We submitted our response to the Court, arguing that we are exactly the right kind of plaintiff to bring this case, emphasizing our 25 year history of protecting free speech online and advocating for users in the digital world.
