Doug Mirell, litigation partner and First Amendment expert, was quoted in the Los Angeles Times discussing the lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the federal law targeting TikTok.


Other legal experts said that they believe TikTok has a strong case. Douglas Mirell, a partner at Greenberg Glusker, said that he suspects the government is going to have a significant burden of trying to prove the law is not unconstitutional under the 1st Amendment.

“If I had to choose which side of the case to be on, I would be on TikTok’s side,” said Mirell, who focuses on 1st Amendment issues.
