US Court to Hear Challenges to Potential TikTok Ban in September

“A U.S. appeals court on Tuesday set a fast-track schedule to consider the legal challenges to a new law requiring China-based ByteDance to divest TikTok’s U.S. assets by Jan. 19 or face a ban. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ordered the case set for oral arguments in September after TikTok, ByteDance and a group of TikTok content creators joined with the Justice Department earlier this month in asking the court for a quick schedule. On May 14, a group of TikTok creators filed suit to block the law that could ban the app used by 170 million Americans, saying it has had ‘a profound effect on American life’ after TikTok and parent company ByteDance filed a similar lawsuit.” (05/28/24)
