Abstract

This is an amicus brief in support of the motion for a preliminary injunction in NetChoice v. Bonta, a Constitutional challenge to the California Age-Appropriate Design Code (AADC) Act. The amicus brief explains how the California AADC creates barriers for both minors and adults seeking to access websites or apps, and how those barriers impermissibly block users from engaging in activities that are protected by the First Amendment.
