TikTok takes fight against app ban to US court

Thursday 24 September 2020 | 09:47 CET | News
TikTok says the US government's proposed ban on its app violates constitutional provisions for free speech and due process and has filed an legal challenge with a district court in Washington, DC, the Wall Street Journal reported. "If the prohibitions are not enjoined, the harm to plaintiffs will be irreparable," the company said. A hearing has been set for 24 September, in the morning. TikTok has explicitly asked the judge the halt the ban.
