Though Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been around for more than 70 years, the body of the law regulating its use is in its infancy. AI is the science of making machines that can think like humans. The reverberation of AI's impact can be felt on every sector of society.

NYCLA is proud to kick off the first episode of the fourth season of the NYCLA Amicus Curiae Podcast with our esteemed guest Landis Best, Co-Chair of Cahill Gordon & Reindel’s First Amendment & Media Litigation practice group. The topic for discussion is the formally known Missouri v. Biden case, now referred to as Murthy v. Missouri. The issue at hand: when do the acts of government officials who lobby social media companies to remove what it deems to be harmful misinformation cross into a violation of the 1st Amendment and free speech? Are these government actors coercing private companies and forcing them to silence voices counter to their own? In short form, did the government make the social media companies such as Twitter and Facebook an offer they couldn't refuse?  Or is this a case of the government exercising its right to protect its citizens? Our host Dan Wiig sat down with Landis to discuss the Missouri v. Biden case, the implications of the 5th Circuit’s ruling, the 1st Amendment, Section 230, The Twitter Files, and how the government's actions may or may not have been constitutional. The Supreme Court granted certiorari in Murthy v. Missouri in October 2023. The impact of the Court's ruling could ultimately define how the government may or may not interact with social media companies in the United States. This episode is informative, enlightening, and balanced - it should not be missed!
