The White House on the Supreme Court Ruling in Loper Bright

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/28/2024 12:50 PM
Washington, DC...The Supreme Court’s ruling in Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo is yet another deeply troubling decision that takes our country backwards. Republican-backed special interests have repeatedly turned to the Supreme Court to block common-sense rules that keep us safe, protect our health and environment, safeguard our financial system, and support American consumers and workers. And once again, the Supreme Court has decided in the favor of special interests, just as it did when they sought to gut long-standing protections for clean water, thwart efforts to respond to a global pandemic, and block the cancelation of crippling student debt for tens of millions of Americans.

Supreme Court Rules 6-3 That Government Can Ask Social Media Companies to Remove Posts

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/26/2024 09:31 AM
Washington, DC...Argued March 18, 2024—Decided June 26, 2024. Under their longstanding content-moderation policies, social-media platforms have taken a range of actions to suppress certain categories of speech, including speech they judge to be false or misleading. In 2020, with the outbreak of COVID–19, the platforms announced that they would enforce these policies against users who post false or misleading content about the pandemic. The platforms also applied misinformation policies during the 2020 election season.
