The law was scheduled to go into effect on Thursday.
In a preliminary injunction issued on Wednesday, the judge sided with two trade associations that argued parts of the law may violate the First Amendment by requiring social media sites to host speech they otherwise would not and by interfering with their editorial judgment.
The plaintiffs also took issue with the fact that legislation targets large technology companies and not smaller companies that operate in similar – if not identical – ways.
The judge noted that the legislation was an effort to rein in providers that were deemed “too large and too liberal.”
