Supreme Court refuses RFK Jr. request to intervene in social media case; Alito dissents

BY ELLA LEE AND ZACH SCHONFELD - 12/11/23 9:47 AM ET


The Supreme Court on Monday refused a request from 2024 presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to intervene in a social media censorship case brought against Biden administration officials.

The justices previously agreed to hear the case, in which a group of Republican-controlled states and individuals are accusing the Biden administration of violating the First Amendment when communicating with social media companies about content moderation.

A similar case brought by Kennedy, the nonprofit Children’s Health Defense and a Louisiana resident was consolidated at the trial level. But the judge did not act on those plaintiffs’ case after granting an injunction in favor of the GOP states.

With the states’ case now before the Supreme Court, Kennedy filed a motion to intervene so he, too, could argue before the justices.

But in a brief order, the justices declined his request. Justice Samuel Alito dissented, claiming that the 2024 presidential campaign will be long underway by the time Kennedy’s case is addressed by the lower court.
