Texas AG Celebrates ‘Big Win Against Big Tech’ as Appeals Court Makes Key Ruling

A federal appeals court ruled Wednesday that Texas can enforce its new law prohibiting social media companies from banning users based on their political beliefs.

A three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued a one-sentence order granting Texas a stay of a December injunction from a federal judge that had suspended the law’s implementation.

The judges, however, did not rule on the law’s constitutionality. Instead, their order permits the law to remain in effect while case proceedings continue in district court.
