Accountable Tech Statement on Murthy v. Missouri

Following today’s Supreme Court decision on Murthy v. Missouri, Accountable Tech Executive Director and Co-Founder Nicole Gill issued the following statement:

“The lawsuits brought by Missouri and Louisiana were meritless and based on inaccuracies intended to weaponize the First Amendment, which would have undermined the government’s ability to defend the U.S. against election interference and disinformation campaigns, particularly in a critical election year. Cooperation between the government and platforms about foreign influence campaigns, election integrity and public health emergencies is essential to preserving public safety and a healthy democracy.

“This decision comes at a pivotal time just months before the November election, as tech companies cut back on trust and safety teams and are recklessly deploying new AI products that are contributing to accelerated online disinformation. It is imperative that we remain vigilant against the threat posed by networked disinformation and any efforts that hamper the government’s ability to protect election integrity.”
