The Supreme Court requests comment from the Biden administration on a social media lawsuit

The Supreme Court asks for the solicitor general’s views on a major First Amendment case. The case involves whether states may bar social media platforms from removing certain types of political speech. It could determine how the right to free speech applies to the marketplace of ideas on the internet. States and the tech industry have urged the Supreme Court to take up the cases. They argue that Silicon Valley companies are unlawfully censoring conservative viewpoints. The cases set up the most consequential test of assertions in the current wave of tech-industry lawsuits.
