TikTok sues Montana after app is banned in state –
TikTok has filed a federal lawsuit against Montana over the state’s new law banning the short-video app.
“We are challenging Montana’s unconstitutional TikTok ban to protect our business and the hundreds of thousands of TikTok users in Montana,” the social media company said in the suit filed on Monday.
Last week, Montana became the first US state to ban TikTok when the governor signed legislation that prohibits app stores from offering the app within the state starting next year.
The law would fine any “entity” – an app store or the social media company itself – $10,000 a day for each time someone “is offered the ability” to access the platform or download the app.
