Elon Musk’s X Corp. has sued the state of California over a content moderation law.

The suit challenges the “constitutionality and legal validity” of the law, signed by California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) last year, which requires social media companies to publicly post their policies on hate speech, disinformation, harassment and extremism on their platforms.

The law, Assembly Bill No. 587 (A.B. 587), also requires social media companies to report data on their enforcement of those policies.

The lawsuit reads: “AB 587 violates X Corp.’s First Amendment right to not speak about controversial topics and to decide for itself what it will say or not say about these topics.”
