Woodhull, HRC Anti-FOSTA Lawsuit to Hit Appeals Court Sept. 20

WASHINGTON, D.C.—It's been almost exactly one year since the Woodhull Freedom Foundation, Human Rights Watch, the Internet Archive and two individuals filed suit in federal court to overturn the Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA) which was signed into law in 2017, and a bit less than one year since U.S. District Judge Richard J. Leon threw the case out of court, ruling that none of the plaintiffs had standing to bring the action in the first place. But Woodhull recently announced that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit had set September 20 as the date to hear arguments appealing Judge Leon's dismissal of the case and asking for a preliminary injunction against enforcement of the law. (AVN)
