Williams & Connolly Client Google Wins in U.S. Supreme Court 

May 2023

On May 18, 2023, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of firm client Google in a pair of cases—Gonzalez v. Google and Twitter v. Taamneh—which were closely watched by the technology sector. Lisa Blatt presented oral argument in Gonzalez, and the firm represented Google in Taamneh. In Taamneh, the Court held unanimously that plaintiffs had failed to state a claim against defendants under the Antiterrorism Act (ATA), 18 U.S.C. § 2333.  And in Gonzalez, the Court declined to address the scope of Section 230(c)(1) of the Communications Decency Act.
The team representing Google included Lisa Blatt, Sarah Harris, Joseph Terry, Andrew Trask, Aaron Roper, Claire Cahill, Tyler Becker, Julia Fine, and Noah McCullough.
The cases were widely covered by the media, including The Washington Post, The New York Times, Bloomberg, and Law360, among many other publications.
