Video app TikTok files a lawsuit over US ban

Video app TikTok has filed a lawsuit challenging the US government’s crackdown on the popular Chinese-owned platform, which Washington accuses of being a national security threat.

“We do not take suing the government lightly,” TikTok said in a blog post, cited by Reuters.

“But with the Executive Order threatening to bring a ban on our US operations … we simply have no choice.”

Reuters reported that Patrick Ryan, a technical program manager at TikTok, sued the administration of US President Donald Trump’s administration over concerns that he and his 1,500 colleagues, including many on employment visas, will lose their jobs next month if Trump’s order is enforced.
