TikTok & its parent firm, ByteDance Ltd, registered a case in Washington(WA) federal court late Fri. night challenging US President Donald Trump’s executive order, the record stated.

The US Commerce Dept. released a ban on Fri. blocking citizens within the US from downloading Chinese-owned messaging application WeChat & TikTok beginning September 20.
