Judge Rejected Ban On TikTok Because Trump's DOJ Can't Show Any Real National Security Threat
From Mike Masnick at Techdirt.
Originally published 2020-09-28
Unlike the WeChat injunction which was done on 1st Amendment grounds, the injunction here doesn't touch the 1st Amendment questions and just says that the Trump White House (even with presenting evidence under seal) totally failed to substantiate the national security threat of TikTok, even under the IEEPA (International Emergency Economic Powers Act) which grants the President tragically and dangerously broad powers to claim a "national emergency" to block international commerce.
So, the WeChat ban gets blocked on 1st Amendment grounds, and the TikTok ban gets blocked because the IEEPA doesn't let the President do what he wants to do, and all of this is just performative nonsense anyway, wasting two separate courtrooms' time, not to mention significant concerns among many different companies which would have had to deal with the fallout of a ban. All because Trump is mad at kids on TikTok who don't like him.
