Press Release: CDT Welcomes Supreme Court Blocking of Texas Social Media Law

The Center for Democracy & Technology (CDT) welcomes the Supreme Court’s ruling today, which blocks the Texas social media law H.B. 20 from going into effect. CDT filed an amicus brief with a coalition of human rights organizations opposing the law earlier this month.

“The Supreme Court’s action to block Texas’s reckless social media law from taking effect is good news for users and the public,” said CDT President and CEO Alexandra Reeve Givens. “We need social media companies to be able to take action against hate, harassment, and disinformation without fearing litigation.”
