Statement on NetChoice v. Paxton

Today the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) President Chris Mohr issued this statement.

“We are disappointed in Friday’s decision in NetChoice v. Paxton to uphold a Texas law that requires websites to carry speech that their owners do not agree with and which allows platforms to keep off all kinds of speech that is both extremely offensive and constitutionally protected. The Fifth Circuit has rewritten bedrock First Amendment law and we look forward to working with other groups to urge the Supreme Court to review this decision and reverse it.”
