Social Media and the First Amendment at the U.S. Supreme Court

New Orleans Lawyers Chapter

Please join the New Orleans Lawyers Chapter for a luncheon and discussion on the First Amendment and social media. In 2021, both Florida and Texas enacted legislation to curtail viewpoint discrimination on social media platforms. The Texas law was upheld in the Fifth Circuit, whereas the Florida law was struck down in the Eleventh Circuit. Last year, the U.S. Supreme Court granted certiorari to review both cases. At issue is whether the First Amendment prohibits the States from restricting social media firms from engaging in editorial choices about whether, and how, to publish and disseminate speech. In advance of the February 26 SCOTUS arguments in NetChoice LLC v. Paxton and Moody v. NetChoice LLC, our panelists will share insightful analysis about the issues arising from social media content moderation and how the Court might decide the cases.
