Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody is calling on the U.S. Supreme Court to determine the constitutionality of a 2021 Florida law limiting the ability of social media giants such as Facebook and Twitter to filter user comments.

Moody filed the petition Sept. 21 in the wake of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals finding Florida’s Senate Bill 7072 violates the First Amendment. The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, however, upheld a Texas law that is similar to Florida’s.

In its petition to the high court, Florida argues that social media companies have become the “modern public square” and that Florida’s SB 7072 is needed to combat large-scale censorship of opinions by the tech giants.
