TikTok has filed a lawsuit against Montana over a new law that will prohibit the use of the app in the state from next year. This legal action follows a lawsuit filed by a group of TikTok creators who want to prevent the law from being passed.





Montana Governor Greg Gianforte signed a bill last week banning TikTok within the state's jurisdiction and requiring app stores to remove it. TikTok has responded by filing a lawsuit, stating that the ban is unconstitutional and violates the First Amendment right to free speech.


TikTok creators have also filed a separate lawsuit against the state, arguing that the ban is a violation of their free speech rights. The lawsuit claims that Montana cannot ban its residents from using TikTok any more than it can ban the Wall Street Journal. TikTok Sues Montana Over Ban Days After Its Users File Lawsuit.

TikTok creators hope that the Montana ban will be stopped by the judiciary system, to prevent other states from following suit. However, politicians from both parties are increasingly concerned about the app, with a bill to ban TikTok nationwide introduced by US Intelligence Committee Chairman Mark Warner just two months ago. The battle over TikTok's future in the US is likely to be long.
