TikTok sues Montana over statewide ban


What you need to know

  • TikTok has issued a lawsuit against the state of Montana.
  • The lawsuit comes just days after Montana signed a statewide ban against the app.
  • The law goes into effect January 1, 2024, and would prohibit app stores from offering TikTok within the state.
  • TikTok says the move is unlawful and goes against the First Amendment.

TikTok is going on the offensive after a law was recently passed in Montana that would ban the app in the state. On Monday, TikTok fired back by filing a lawsuit against the state of Montana, according to TechCrunchcalling the move to ban the app within the state “unlawful.”

The bill, signed into law on May 17 by Montana Governor Greg Gianforte, prohibits the app from operating within Montana and would mandate that app stores make the app unavailable to download in the state. Violators would be fined $10,000 per day per violation.
