TikTok lawyers have filed a lawsuit against the authorities of the state of Montana (USA), challenging the unconstitutional ban of the social network in the state. This is stated on ABC News.

They are challenging “an unconstitutional ban on TikTok in Montana to protect their businesses and hundreds of thousands of social media users in the state.” The lawsuit emphasizes that the restriction of TikTok’s work in Montana violates the First Amendment of the US Constitution on guarantees of free speech.

Previously, tiktokers from Montana filed a lawsuit in court to challenge the recently passed law banning the use of the TikTok app. They insist that banning the platform for the exchange of views is a violation of the First Amendment to the US Constitution, which protects freedom of speech.

In the law passed by Montana Governor Greg Gianforte to ban the use of the TikTok app in the state it is noted that Google and Apple have removed the TikTok application from the App Store and Google Play. Service blocking is not provided.

In case of insolvency of TikTok lawyers to prove the illegality of this requirement in court, IT companies will have to remove the application from their platforms from January 1, 2024. In case of non-compliance with local law, they face a fine of $ 10 thousand. for each overdue day.
