The 5th Circuit recently upheld H.B. 20, Texas's law banning social media platforms from censoring users based on viewpoint. This has created a split with the 11th Circuit, which held that a substantially similar Florida law violated platforms' First Amendment rights. What does this mean for social media content moderation, and how might the Supreme Court approach these issues? Join JOLTT on Monday, October 17 for "The Fate of Content Moderation: Constitutional and Practical Implications of the Texas Social Media Law." This panel discussion will explore the ramifications of Texas's social media law from legal and technical perspectives. Lunch will be provided. Please see the link for more details and to RSVP.
