TikTok Users File Lawsuit to Block Montana Ban

Five users are suing the state government

Five TikTok users in Montana who create content posted on the short-video app filed a lawsuit in federal court seeking to block the state's new ban on the Chinese-owned platform.

On Wednesday, Montana Governor Greg Gianforte signed legislation to ban TikTok in the state, effective Jan. 1, 2024. The five users seek to block the law, which makes it unlawful for the app stores of Google and Apple to offer TikTok within the state.

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Montana late on Wednesday, names the state's attorney general, Austin Knudsen, who is charged with enforcing the law.
