Feds’ pressure on tech platforms to censor COVID ‘misinformation’ is unconstitutional, suit says

The New Civil Liberties Alliance (NCLA), a frequent litigant against COVID-related administrative action, is representing theoretical cognitive scientist Mark Changizi, lawyer Michael Senger and stay-at-home father Daniel Kotzin.

Twitter suspended Kotzin temporarily and Senger permanently within a week of Surgeon General Vivek Murthy’s March 3 request for information (RFI) on the “impact and prevalence of health misinformation in the digital information environment during the COVID-19 pandemic,” including how it affects “likelihood to vaccinate.”

The RFI not only encompasses search engines and social media but e-commerce platforms and instant messaging systems, “prompting technology companies to ramp up censorship for fear of adverse action against them,” including regulation, the suit says.
