A federal judge has temporarily blocked Montana's law aiming to ban TikTok within the state, citing concerns that it "oversteps state power" and "likely violates the First Amendment."
The judge, Donald Molloy, expressed skepticism about the ban during an October hearing, highlighting that TikTok users willingly provide their personal data, and the ban had an "undertone of anti-Chinese sentiment."
The ruling is preliminary, and a final decision will be made after a trial expected next year, while the debate on TikTok's future in the U.S. continues amid national security concerns and geopolitical tensions with China.
