X Corp. vs. California


X Corp. vs. California

Elon Musk’s X Corp. is suing the state of California over AB 587, a bill that requires social media companies to report to the state attorney general every two years on how they’re dealing with hate speech and other politically-charged content on their platforms.

The suit claims that the bill violates federal and state free speech laws because it compels companies like X Corp. to engage in speech against their will.

X Corp. argues that it’s difficult to reliably define hate speech because there’s no consensus on what the terms mean.

The suit alleges that AB 5 87 is intended to make social media services remove content that the state thinks is problematic.”

Governor Gavin Newsom’s office promoted the bill as a nation-leading social media transparency measure when he signed it into law in September last year.
