The New Civil Liberties Alliance (NCLA) non-profit has lodged an appeal to the US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit asking it to stop what it considers to be government-directed social media censorship.
The case in question is Changizi, et al. v. HHS, et al., which NCLA believes should be allowed to progress. Previously, a lower court dismissed the filing.
We obtained a copy of the appeal for you here.
The group believes that current US administration officials have violated the First Amendment by playing an active role in directing the way major social media companies censor user content around Covid.
This, NCLA said, announcing the appeal, included not only some Biden White House Officials but also some from the the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
