Former President Donald Trump on Monday filed a Supreme Court brief with the support of the nonprofit America First Policy Institute in support of Florida's social media law regarding censorship.
Trump is asking the court to uphold the Florida law that requires companies to be open about content moderation. Net Choice, an association of technology giants such as Google, Twitter, Yahoo, TikTok and Amazon, is challenging the law.
The attorneys for Net Choice argue that the companies benefit from the Communications Decency Act and are common carriers because they are entities available to the public.
"Similar to other common carriers like airlines, Big Tech welcomes all customers. And while companies can set standards for the usage of their products, such as purchasing a ticket to travel, they must apply those standards evenly and fairly. Big Tech currently does not," lead Trump attorney John Coale said.
